Download Document/Synopsis

Fuel theft in parked vehicles is increasing day by day these days. Moreover increasing fuel prices adds to the frustration of a fuel theft. This project focuses on the fuel theft problem and puts forward an effective solution for this problem. It senses the amount of fuel in tank and visually displays it to the used. It successfully detects fuel thefts using a unique method.
IT detects weather the vehicle is turned off. If the fuel decreases while vehicle is turned off it triggers an event and this event is linked to message sending functionality. Fuel level sensing gauge will be connected to µC through ADC. Quantity of the fuel will be displayed on LCD. A GSM modem with a SIM card will be interfaced with µC. If the fuel level in the tank decreases while vehicle is in OFF state, then an alert will be sent to user’s mobile in text form.
