Abstract—The paper presents the design and working mechanism of a multipurpose vehicle tracking system using latest microprocessor and telecommunication technologies. Major components constituting the system are ARM Cortex-M3 STM32 microcontroller, GSM (SIM900), GPS (LR9548), HMC5883L Digital Magnetometer and MPU-6050 Accelerometer. The entire system comprises 2 subsystems; one that resides in the vehicle (vehicle system) and a remote monitoring system. The vehicle system provides the monitoring system with GPS location and bearing of the vehicle. At the monitoring system, a map matching algorithm works in conjunction with the GPS location and bearing to accurately determine and display the road segment on which the vehicle travels. The tracking system also apprises the user in the unfortunate case of accidents using data from accelerometer and pressure sensors. It is also equipped to stop the vehicle through an ignition switching mechanism created with relays.
