Abstract: This paper presents an object tracking system to track the objects through GPS and Bluetooth technology. Objects are usually tracked by the implementation of signal strength based on GPS, GSM, RFID and Bluetooth. We make use of Global Positioning System (GPS) for tracking long range objects and Bluetooth technology for short range objects. The system allows a user to view the present position of the target object on Google Map through an android application. Hence each target object will have a tag that has both GPS and Bluetooth module. The experimental results suggest that many belongings lost through misplacement or robbery can be found within a short span of time by making use of the object tracking system.
Keywords: GPS, GPRS, RFID, Bluetooth.
