DIY iPhone remote automotive ignition

Posted on Friday, December 30th, 2011 in Arduino by the machinegeek


Will O’Brien developed this project allowing him to remotely start his car via an SMS sent to a jailbroken iPhone. The additional hardware involved is an Arduino, iPhone breakout board such as the PodBreakout Mini, 4x 10k resistors, 1x TIP120 and a 5 volt switching supply cell charger.

All the details, including source code and schematic are available on Will’s Biobug website.
