INTRODUCTION

GPS based Ferry tracking system provides effective real time Ferry location, mapping
and reporting this information. A GPS-based Ferry tracking system will informed
where GPS carry Ferry is and where it has been. The system uses geographic
position and time information from the Global Positioning Satellites. The system has
an "On- Board Module" which resides in the Ferry to be tracked and a "Base Station"
that monitors data from the various Ferries. The On-Board module consists of GPS
receiver, a GSM modem.

The system is microcontroller based that consists of a global positioning system


(GPS) and global system for mobile communication (GSM). This project uses only
one GPS device and a two way communication process is achieved using a GSM
modem. GSM modem, provided with a SIM card uses the same communication
process as we are using in regular phone.
This system is user friendly, easily installable, easily accessible and can be used
for various other purposes. After installation system will locate target by the use
of a Web application (HTML based application) in Google map. The system allows
to track the target anytime and anywhere in any weather conditions.

Problem Definition

in recent time there has been several reported case of stolen ferry at different location
across Lagos jetties, also the regular occurrence of capsizing boat in which the rescue
operations lies in the ability of the local fisher men, this ugly incidents prompt the invention
of the ferry tracking system, the under listed are the problems facing the local jetty
services provider in the country which demands for a system to solve such problems.

1 Frequent ferry theft without tracing.

2 in case of emergency there is difficulty in ascertain location of ferry.

3 no recorder on board ferry to record information at all time and store this information in
data base.

4 Poor fleet management

Objective

Exploring GPS based tracking systems, the under listed are the core objectives in which
the ferry tracker is expected to achieve.

1. Acquisition of Ferrys location information (latitude longitude)

2. Transmission of Ferrys location and other information (including ignition status) to the
monitoring unit.

3. Developing a web based software to display all transmitted information to end user along
with displaying location of Ferry on a map.

4. To build an additional feature to the present security system that will warn the owner of
the fleet management by sending SMS when There is an intrusion into the Ferry system.

5. To provide a solution to lost of Ferry to theft.

6. recording the audio conversation in transit, to give a better security aid when the ferry is
in vouyage, this enable the jetty manager to know the safety and security of passenger on
board.
