As a snatch theft has become a serious problem to the society, it is required an immediate action to put an end to this problem. One of the solutions is to develop Smart Hand Bag system using Radio Frequency (RF) signal and location tracker as the main component. This project is implemented using an Arduino microcontroller, RF transmitter and receiver module, SIM900 Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) and Global Positioning System (GPS) module, and 9dB buzzer. This smart handbag produces a loud sound to attract people surrounding whenever a snatch crime happens. The system is also able to track the location of the handbag by using GPS. The location tracked by the GPS module will be sent to the victim by using Short Messaging Service (SMS). Hence, this successfully developed Smart Hand Bag project is expected to help women to prevent this crime from spreading.
