The data from the PNP-NCRPO as of 2011 indicated that crimes in Metro Manila are increasing. Carnapping occurs when a citizen takes a car without the owners consent, or a person forcively takes a car from another person. The victim can be held-up or kidnapped when assaulted by a carnapper. These can happen inside a car wherein the victim could not seek for immediate help.

Also, when the crime is ongoing the victim could not seek out for help, and the police are not aware that such an event is ongoing near their jurisdiction. This scenario made the Filipino motorists susceptible to carnapping. Due to these events, the analysts came up with the project that will help the motorists become assured that the police can monitor them when they are on the streets and prevent them from being susceptible to carnapping. The analysts designed a device that could track an ongoing carnap victim’s place and could also report or send an emergency message to those people who must know it (e.g. police, relatives and others). The tracking device will be programmed using JAVA.
A website will be designed to be a place where the Parañaque motorists could seek out information about the current modi operandi in carnapping. The website will include a forum that will allow the victims to...
