Intuitive Vehicle Theft Control System
In today’s world almost every common man owns a vehicle. Theft is a common issue which everyone faces in
parking and sometimes driving near insecure places. Vehicle security and accident prevention is more challenging. So in
order to bring a solution for this problem the proposed system can be implemented. The vehicle anti-theft system presented
here consists of multiple layers of protection with one complementing the other, rather than the conventional anti-theft
system where a particular system is only being used. The first layer of protection in the system is a Key recognition, based
on which the doors are opened. The Key matching is done by Key recognition scheme. Also to prevent thieves from
breaking the glass and getting inside the vehicle, vibration sensors are used in all the windows with a threshold level to
prevent false alarms. Further to prevent the seizure of the vehicle, Tyre pressure sensor is also being used which also alerts
the owner through a mobile message. The seized vehicle can be tracked using a GPS tracker which is also being attached.
The different layers of protection defined are controlled by an ARM Cortex M-3 based controller acting as the central node.
The experimental results proved the functionality of the anti-theft system in working environment. It can also prove
beneficial to find out the exact location of the accident. This work also attempt to design a system using global positioning
system (GPS) to determine the precise location of an object, person or other asset to which it is attached and to transmit this
information using GSM.
