Purpose and Importance of the Project 

The purpose of this report and project is to serve as a practical application of knowledge gained in class.  It is intended for us to learn about anti-theft devices and gain experience with hardware design for a practical application, micro-controller programming and wireless communication. We do not intend to market this product and are aware of the features of current alarms on the market.  See appendix 3 for more details on current alarm systems available and their prices.  

This alarm will not actually be installed in a car because there is not one available for us to alter its circuitry.  The relays that would be required to activate all of the necessary components such as horn, headlights and hazard lights will be in the circuit and a write up on how to install the circuit into a car will be included.  

This circuit is a prototype and will be larger than an actual implementation, which would require a printed circuit board.
