Resource management becomes an essential task in our day-to-day lives. Particularly, a few types of assets like fuel which is non-inexhaustible in nature should be overseen in a legitimate path so as to maintain a strategic distance from efficient misfortune. In today’s digital world, there should be automatization in Indian forces for fleet management which will greatly help them in maintaining equipment sustenance. The idea is specifically employed for Indian forces by developing three main modules: GPS tracker, weight measurement, and fuel level indicator. We have built up this system to continuously monitor the status of a vehicle by using GPS tracker. Weight sensor is used to measure the weight of the vehicle through which we can get direct information in case of smuggling of weapons. While transmitting fuel to another medium, in order to prevent losses of fuel, we have used fuel level indicator to sense the basic level of medium. The motivation behind developing such a system is to prevent smuggling and losses of fuels and weapons in Indian forces. This solution enhances security as it is accessed remotely over the fleet by an authentic person by using the Internet of Things (IoT) model.
