To clarify: you want to have the device send location data to a server somewhere and display that on an OSM based map via a web interface?

Hi Amila, do you got the solution. If yes, can you please share with me. Thanks

At least http://opengts.sourceforge.net/ likely does what you want and supports an OSM based map (naturally you should add attribution to the map if you are building a public service).

There naturally may be other solutions, please have a look at https://help.openstreetmap.org/tags/tracking/ , http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Software and naturally do a search with google.

The android app Osmand has a feature so send a realtime position to a web server:
