The goal of the Watch My Car project is to provide the user with all of the perks of having a key fob but with a greater range and more advanced features-- including use as a diagnostic tool. The project utilizes the Pebble Smartwatch, Apple iOS SDK, and Raspberry Pi platforms. Users of Watch My Car enjoy all of the benefits of basic key fob tasks (engine start/stop, lock/unlock doors, etc), with additional innovative tasks sprinkled in. This expanded vehicle controller is most convenient as it can be executed from a user’s Smartwatch and/or their Apple device. In the iOS app, users can find information on their car including metrics (fuel data, maintenance data, etc), manufacturer details, and location data.
