Today’s current worldwide circumstances, the leading question in every persons mind taking into account is the ever rising increase of issues on vehicle security and safety. The only thought haunting in everyone’s mind is when they will be able to move freely on the road even in odd hours without worrying. At the same time, Smartphone’s are constantly increasing their connection capabilities. The continuous improvement of cellular networks, that can now provide high speed data communications, makes it possible to consider them for safety related services as well as for information and entertainment. This opens the way to the use the Smartphone’s for communication. In the existing systems security lock and alarm is implemented in a car. But such facilities are not able to compete the requirements of users and will not provide the security. So, authorized user needs a security system along with fully automated tracking which will fulfill the requirements of the owners /users which give better results. Users will be able to monitor a moving vehicle on demand using the Smartphone application. In order to show the achievability and efficiency of the system, this paper presents experimental results of the vehicle tracking system and some experiences on practical implementations.
