This study evaluates the importance of connecting objects through the concept of the Internet of things (IoT). There has been an increasing trend in the topic of the Internet of Things in various sectors. Almost all, such as area, devices, the software is connected which all can be accessed remotely or virtually through smart devices. The most typical invention is the smartphone which that acts like the computer and sometimes even smatter smarter when connected with web & internet. But the new term smart homes where all the devices and machinery are connected to ensure that all smart processes are smart. This can be extended to a smart village, smart city and smart industry. Here we introduce a vehicle tracking system by using the concept IoT. Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) is a protocol commonly used in the IoT platform to share information.  It can be used for both publishings and subscribe subscribing data from one end to another. Here we have used the same technique has been used in the present work to design a simulation to track the exact location of a given vehicle. IOT broker and the smart devices were integrated into the middleware enterprise service bus the middleware (ESB) architecture and the simulation was run with numerous geolocations.

IoT, ESB, MQTT, smart vehicle tracking system.
