We are a team of Car Nerds that build hardware to help you Root Your Ride!

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.
