How to make Vehicle Tracking Web Portal?
Vehicle tracking system is a very common and important project especially if you are an engineering student. So as engineering student you may not have an experience of making websites but defiantly it would be included in your project scope. I will guide you how to accomplish this task and make a simple tracking system. This may not be a very good approach but it works.
So I suppose you have setup your GSM module in your Vehicle which is getting value from GPS module and ready to send or receive via SMS.
