Abstract:- Nowadays internet of things plays a crucial role in different applications such as smart home, smart transportation, etc. Vehicle theft as well as safety is the major problem faced by the people in society. With the help of the internet of things, provide security and safety to the system is the main intention of the proposed system. The latest survey report shows that vehicles that get stolen out of five only one get recovered. In some places Cctv cameras are present. So with the help of that, we can find the vehicle, but in many places Cctv cameras are absent due to that, we are unable to track the vehicle. With the help of the proposed system we can find the vehicle immediately after theft happens, and also the vehicle owner can control their vehicle remotely. In the proposed system a Gps is interfaced in the vehicle it helps to find the location of the vehicle at any time. An Arduino microcontroller is placed inside the vehicle and it is controlled by an android application. When a second person takes our vehicle without our permission, we can send a command using our smartphone to the Arduino. While receiving the command sent from the smartphone, the Arduino microcontroller off the ignition motor and immobilizes it with a buzzer sound, and the owner can track the location. There is an Associate in Nursing accident detection system enclosed in our projected model, whenever an accident is detected it'll a message is sent to the nearest police station. The system developed is reliable, low cost, and user-friendly which may facilitate the recovery of the vehicle if it gets taken.

    Nowadays in India, around 38,000 vehicles are purloined that is the price of Rs.120crore of cash. Out of this only, 40% of the vehicle get recovered. In fewer safety areas, additional vehicle thefts manifest themselves. By putting in our planned system in vehicle larceny may be prevented. Stealer typically steals the vehicle victimization spare keys. To avoid we propose a method in which if a second person takes our vehicle without our permission, we can remotely immobilize our vehicle. There is GPS embedded in the vehicle part, through which we can access the location of the vehicle. Whenever the location of the vehicle changes after the vehicle stop it sends a message to the respective owner's smartphone.

    By using the mobile application in the owner's phone the user can send an "ignition off" command. The command sent from the smartphone goes to the server that is interfaced with the controller that closes up the ignition and immobilizes it. There's an associate accident detection system embedded within the vehicle. The system developed is reliable, low price, and user-friendly which might facilitate the recovery of the auto if it gets purloined.

    In this paper section 2 deals with related works, section 3 deals with the proposed approach and section 4 discuss about the results and section5 is the conclusion.


    Much has been done in research on the safety system. Some of these activities are given below:

    In [1] MAL Rousan and AR ALAK Darwish proposed a method in which prioritized A's system for monitoring and managing urban vehicles such as taxis and buses. . In [4] L. Jamjoom and A.Alshmarani- have put forward a method where the idea is to allow a group of authorized people to share multiple vehicles. In [2] "Automatic navigation and portable vehicle control using Wireless sensor network technology" suggested by Young, Kar- Keung D. This paper introduces a novel concept for automated navigation and control of a mobile platform. It utilizes an ad-hoc mobile wireless sensor network to provide navigational information to the mobile platform embedded control system. In [3] "Smart Smart Monitoring System Based on GPS, GSM and GIS" was proposed by Peng Chen, Shuang Liu. In this smart car monitoring system that uses GPS / GSM, this paper analyzes major system technologies such as GIS, wireless communication, and communication.


    The planned method consists of an Arduino UNO microcontroller. The visual system incorporates an Arduino development board degree as a road unit and provides administrative functions throughout the system. It uses GPS Technology thus tracking the condition of vehicles. Whenever there is a need for this mandatory system it can act as a result of stealing a system of high-security interference. The system forced

    to compile the vehicle the authorized person can send the command to the server on the net. If any vehicle is present then it means that the response is provided from a server within the type of digital code provided to the user and if the vehicle is not present it means that the unavailable vehicle request message is still being transmitted to the user. The digital code is still distributed in the setup of the microcontroller system installed in the car with the help of a BlueTooth module connected to the BlueTooth material among the movable objects. The

    bespoke Android app is embedded in the middle of the smartphone and therefore in the digital code transfer to the microcontroller system designed to make the Eclipse coding system. Arduino UNO depends on the command you received to take the required action. closes the heating car. this method can manage the vehicle at the command of the car owner. If a car is stolen by someone it means that the bar is OPEN so the SMS is still distributed to the owner of the car. it, therefore, provides vehicle guidance. The precise location of the vehicle is achieved with the help of a MEMS sensor that acts as a result of a reduced compass. When the location of the vehicle changes without the permission of the owner. The owner receives a notification for the vehicle to cross the correct location. and an accident detection system installed inside the entire vehicle. Whenever our vehicle is tripled our system takes it as a risk level communication and sends a notification to the nearest station.
