If you have a few hours to spare this weekend and fancy a project to increase your skills with Arduino, you might be interested in this Arduino powered car tracking system which has been featured on the Instructable’s website.
The Arduino Powered Car Tracking System uses a Arduino Uno, a GSM shield, a GPS module together with a few other parts and has been design to powered from the cars battery.
The device has been published to the Instructables website by Jayvis Vineet Gonsalves and has been designed to help to track you car is its stolen or just keep an eye on its where abouts. Watch the video below to learn more about the Arduino Powered Car Tracking project and see it in action.
“We all love our cars and whether it is a roaring Lamborghini or a purring Prius, we are attached to it and wish that it never gets stolen. I am very attached to my family car and take lots of precaution that I do not park my car in secluded places or double check that I always lock my car when I park it anywhere and always carry my car keys with me. However, I am still worried whether my car is safe. In order to get rid of these genuine worries, I decided to design my own low cost car tracking system.
In this instructable, I have explained the process of building one’s very own Global Car Tracking System -‘Athena’ – for a cost of just 100$. The steps for building this device is very simple and explained in a lucid manner. The skills required for you to build this is minimum (Basic knowledge about electronics and the Arduino IDE).
I have christened this device by the name ‘Athena’ because Athena is the Greek Goddess of navigation. “Filed Under: Design News
