Vehicle networks was first implemented in shipping industry as people were curious about location of each vehicle at a particular given time. With faster growing technology, automated vehicular networks has been used in many ways to track vehicle locations in real-time and display it. This paper provides survey along with design methodology of a tracking system which tracks the vehicles, that takes the service of Google maps for tracking. The proposed technique use Google maps for tracing the vehicle and output the location in real time. A hardware module is inside the vehicle that takes help of Global Positioning System (GPS) – to find location of the vehicle and uses Global system for mobile communication (GSM) – to provide vehicle locality in website showing google map.
