iPhone Controlled Mazda RX-8

at 11:44 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Computer Hacks, Cool Gadgets, Electronic Hacks, Insane Equipment


We have seen some very cool car hacks in the past but this iPhone Controlled Mazda RX-8 by Jonathan Oxer takes the cake. Using a wi-fi connected iPhone the user can connect to a computer in the car which is connected to the net using a separate internet connection. With this setup the user can now open doors, start the engine, monitor all of the car stats such as RPM and if that isn’t enough you can even see where the car is on a Google map.

“The car’s webserver provides a password-protected web interface optimised for full-screen display on an iPod Touch or iPhone running the SOPOD full-screen browser. The web interface has three screens: 1) Control, which provides a top-down view of the car with buttons for start, stop, lock, unlock, accessory power, and boot release; 2) Telemetry, which displays real-time data acquired from the engine management system such as RPM, vehicle speed, coolant temperature, throttle position, etc; and 3) Location, which uses a Google Maps mashup to display the current location of the vehicle on a map using current GPS data.”

This iPhone control is a great example of innovative thought and creativity. Most custom application development today needs to be this way in order to give it a fun yet competitive edge in it’s market.

Thanks for the tip stagueve

    I first read this I thought the car was being drivin by the iPhone…
    Also this poses a major security hole

  4. Ben Wardill Says:

    am really disappointed that he hasn’t set up an R/C car. saying that, I doubt he could sit in the drivers seat if he did that ;)

    cool idea, would be better if:
    - it controlled the sound system
    - set up a mechanism in the car to actually open a specific door
    - and where do the heat seeking missiles go exactly?
