iPod Controlled Mazda RX-8

This cool project allows the user to control various functions of their car by using an iPod Touch or any other mobile device with web access.

The car is fitted with a computer system and has a built in mobile broadband connection. This makes the car accessible from the internet. All the phone does is connects over the internet to a webpage in which you click on various buttons to control the car. This setup means the car can be controlled from anywhere in the world

By connecting up to the Mazda’s GPS the car can be tracked on Google Maps. Also the car connects up to the diagnostics port in the car which provides information about the idle speed, temperature and fuel levels.

Check out the video below of it in action. I think you’ll find it impressive!
