DIY iPhone Remote Automotive Ignition with ArduinoDecember 31, 2011


You’ll someday look back and think of how quaint it was to start your car with a key. With this clever hack, Will O’Brien shows us his working prototype for a remote automotive ignition controlled by an iPhone, an Arduino, and SMS text messaging. Source code and schematic are available on his site. [Thanks, Will!] [Cooking Hacks] Will has used an iPhone, an Arduino, an iPod Breakout, 4x 10k resistors, 1x TIP120, a 5 volt switching supply cell charger (similar to 5V Regulator), some wiring ability and a general understanding of unix/perl/arduino.
