Abstract

The simple GPS methods are unable to retrieve the real-time information of vehicle location and vehicle running state in some special circumstances such as tunnels and built-ups. Hence, the vehicle monitoring system to acquire real-time vehicle information is required. In this paper, by integrating technologies of RFID, GPS, GPRS and using LANDMARC method, an accurate vehicle location system in a variety of complex environments is proposed. The proposal is able to improve the precise vehicle location and get the mechanical information of vehicle status by the technology of wireless data communication.
