An OBD2 breakout to replace all that spaghetti on your desk

It can be remarkably difficult to get test gear in between a vehicle and an OBD2 device, with the typical solution being to flay apart 2-3 OBD2 cables in order to build a rats-nest of wires that allow you access to every signal line and allow you to re-route any signal to any pin. Unfortunately they are also hard to reconfigure, and look like a robot threw up his spaghetti dinner on your workbench.

OK Google, start my car!

Macchina is excited to show off one of our most-requested videos, a technology demo we call "OK Google, start my car!", which is a clever project that allows you to use Google Assistant and various IoT services to remotely start and stop a car using our M2 automotive interface with our SuperB wireless expansion module.

The full project write-up, complete with all the links to the sample code, libraries, and triumphant demo video is on the Macchina documentation page here.
