Siri hacked to remotely start a car

Comments Off on Siri hacked to remotely start a car

A hacker have successfully ported Siri to remotely command his car such as “Start my car”, “Lock my car”, “Pop my trunk”, etc. Accordingly, check out how he did it after the cut with a video for you to watch.

I created a new ruby plugin that is used by plamoni’s “Siri Proxy”, a proxy server for Apple’s Siri assistant. This proxy server allows for the creation of custom plugins that can intercept recognized speech and perform virtually any function imaginable (programmable, scriptable).

The “Siri Proxy” plugin I wrote handles interaction with a php script that runs on my web server. The php script, which I developed months ago for personal use, allows me to send commands to my car which has a Viper SmartStart module installed.

Current commands accepted are: “Vehicle Arm”, “Vehicle Disarm”, “Vehicle Start”, “Vehicle Stop”, “Vehicle Pop Trunk”, and “Vehicle Panic”.

–UPDATE: Now it also responds to more conversational commands such as “Start my car”, “Lock my car”, “Pop my trunk”, etc…

Noticeable in this application is the presence of the remote, so basically the thought of why not just press the stop and start button out there. However, this is really something cool to know how many things can be supported on Siri and voice command.

Don’t be surprised if someday will come that you can command Siri, “Drive my car!”, ooh, we believe Apple will be needing Google’s help here.
