Abstract
Today, vehicles are equipped with advanced electronics
and complex alarm systems but still vehicle and cargo theft
is a huge problem around the world.
After struggling with this issue for several decades, the
government in Brazil finally had enough and voted that all
new vehicles manufactured or imported to the country are
required to be equipped with an electronic device enabling
tracking and immobilization of the vehicle if stolen.
Remote immobilization could be a possible solution to
prevent vehicle theft and also give the authorities a way to
reclaim valuable cargo from stolen vehicles.
Since Scania was already developing a telematic unit with

Today, vehicles are equipped with advanced electronics

Remote immobilization could be a possible solution to
prevent vehicle theft and also give the authorities a way to
reclaim valuable cargo from stolen vehicles.
Since Scania was already developing a telematic unit with
the purpose of tracking vehicles and analyzing vehicle data,
this thesis was started to investigate if it was possible to
use the unit and the current system for remote
immobilization as well. Security of the system would be
the key issue since a flaw in security could give
unauthorized access to stop vehicles and this would
certainly be a disaster.
A prototype system was created to test the reliability and
performance of the system. (Less)
