Abstract: Automobiles are getting more and more sophisticated with many features these days. With growth and availability of internet, much more value addition can be brought in. But, mostly, all the rich and safety features are part of the luxury and high-end cars. Or, it needs additional cost to incorporate these features. For a lower end car, these features still remain unreachable. In this research, we have come up with features at a very affordable cost for all the variants of the cars. Our system includes safety features, theft alert, panic alerts, driver behaviour monitoring, fuel leakage detection, etc., all in one unit. The system is tested for its functioning and is found to be effective under various operating conditions.

Keywords: automobile theft alert; vehicle monitoring system; driver and passenger safety system; vehicle tracking; IOT platforms in automobile systems; cayenne vehicle theft alert system; automobile theft control system.
