Now, start your vehicle's engine with a smartphone!

Two engineering students, namely Anish Yadav and Aishwarya Kaushik have created a prototype for a smart vehicle ignition system which can be operated through a smartphone. The two students from Punjab's Zirakpur, have developed a software that can be installed on an Android phone. The software can be connected wirelessly to a smart vehicle ignition control kit through bluetooth or Wi-Fi and can be used to start the engine of a vehicle and control the headlight and air-conditioning system. The idea struck the duo after Kaushik's father complained of not being able to start the engine of his car during winters.
