Waste management has become a major issue in many cities in India. So an efficient vehicle tracking system is proposed which is designed and implemented for waste management. This system makes use of good and popular technology to track a garbage vehicle by combining smartphone applications with an Arduino so that people will come to know the exact location of the Garbage Van. This will be an easy and efficient technique as compared to other techniques. In this system, the van is tracked with the help of a global positioning system (GPS). The microcontroller is used to control a GPS and GSM module. The vehicle tracking system uses the GPS module to get geographic coordinates for real-time applications. The GPS sends coordinates with the help of a microcontroller. So, the GPS module is used to transmit and update the vehicle location to a database. The smartphone application is also developed for continuously monitoring the vehicle position. In addition to this, the system will also send the SMS notification regarding the location of the Garbage Van when it comes to a particular area.
