Statistics show that the number of cars is increasing rapidly and so is the number of car theft attempts, locally and internationally. Although there are a lot of car security systems that had been produced lately, but the result is still disappointing as the number of car theft cases still increases. The thieves are inventing cleverer and stronger stealing techniques that need more powerful security systems. This project “Car Monitoring and Tracking System” is being proposed to solve the issue. It introduces the integration between monitoring and tracking system. Both elements are very crucial in order to have a powerful security system. The system can send SMS and MMS to the owner to have fast response especially if the car is nearby. This paper focuses on using MMS and database technology, the picture of the intruder will be sent via local GSM/GPRS service provider to user (and / or) police. The Database offers the required information about car and owner, which will help the police or security authorities in their job. Moreover, in the event of theft local police and user can easily track the car using GPS system that can be link to Google Earth and other mapping software. The implementation and testing results show the success of prototype in sending MMS to owner within 40 seconds and receiving acknowledgment to the database (police or security unit) within 4 minutes. The timing and results are suitable to owner and police to take suitable action against intruder.
