An integrated global positioning system and global system for mobile communication (GPS and GSM) is developed to track and control vehicles from remote places to assure the maximum security. It is a cost-effective and reliable solution for tracking and monitoring automobiles using the recent advancements of GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication), GPS (Global Positioning System) and Embedded System technology. This paper presents an automotive localization system using GPS and GSM Short message service (SMS). This paper presents an application of low cost solution for automobile position and status, very useful in case of car theft situations, for monitoring adolescent drivers as well as in car tracking system applications. The proposed solution can be used in other types of applications, where the needed information is required rarely.
