DIY iPhone remote automotive ignition

in Arduino by the machinegeek | 1 comment


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.

  1. Nice project, but using an iPhone? Doesn’t that get expensive quick? I think I had seen people cannibalize those $20 pre-paid phones for this and it is a great idea, I just couldn’t spring for an iPhone and still feel good about it.
