Car Security System using Fingerprint Scanner and IOT


Objectives: This paper presents a noble system to detect vehicle thefts. If an unauthorized person tries to steal the vehicle, user and police station will be notified with GPS location. Methods: Fingerprints stored in the memory of the system. If the fingerprint and RFID matches with the stored ones then the controller triggers the powering circuit of the ECM else if the burglar tries to start the car in any other ways it sends the alert messages of the interventions as well as the car’s location to the owner’s mobile app via cloud. Findings: The system is implemented using Intel Galileo gen2 board. The GPS, GSM, Wi-Fi module as well as an SD Card is also connected to the board. Installing this smart system is helpful because this system won’t let the ECM to power on the engine as designed. The system also incorporates certain other sensors to stop the car burglary. If the burglar tries to turn on the battery by using paperclips in the fuses then the owner will be notified about the past proceedings along with GPS location of the car. Application: The system works well with low-price range car employed with keyless entry and self-start button and is unique because it uses IoT to protect the low price cars.
