Abstract

The level of poor economic situations in Nigeria has made people conscious of their vehicles, aged parents, younger ones and valuable belongings. Lots of car owners both personal and commercial are in fear of consistent increase in security challenges, excessive reports of vehicle stealing, kidnapping for ransom on the high ways on daily basis, as a result, are in constant search for efficient system to monitor their vehicle at any point in time. There are many systems that have been developed to reduce these problems by introduction of an effectual vehicle tracking system which is developed for tracking the movement and location of any device embedded vehicle at will, with the aid of microcontroller which employs IoT (Internet of Things) technologies to communicate with either Smartphone or personal computer. This paper reviews some existing works and explores in details to compare some of these systems, the technologies utilized, successes achieved, and gaps deserving further improvement in such systems.
