Abstract: Over the years, many systems have addressed the problem of location sensing. In the past, geographic positioning systems (GPS) have been widely used to track moving objects located outside environments. These systems have several problems such as operational, environmental and high cost. The fixed GPS infrastructure causes several problems in wireless systems. Thus, GPS is considered not a suitable solution for the fixed environment. Due to this, there is a need for the system that can be replaced with less effort to meet future needs. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to discuss the available wireless technologies like radio frequency identification (RFID) techniques and mobile ad hoc sensor network. In doing so, the application of these technologies for remote objects information acquisition and tracking of moving objects is discussed. Further, the authors attempt to develop a communications setup for highways of Pakistan by using RFID and wireless sensor networks techniques to build a network that can be used for object tracking and information acquisition of moving vehicles on highways. This system may be used for variety of purposes especially for security enhancements at highways.
