[WIP] NFC car starter by MrStein
You can make one with the eagle files if you know how solder the components (I will make a bill of material soon) ;)
Maybe I can give you a blank prototype board, but you still need to buy the components ;)
here is the board finished:
Black jumper is for simulate the brake
blue&brown are supply
brown, blue & yellow/green are contact & starter.
I also make some videos for show how plug this device & how supply, bypass the immo,... (in french)
Part1: neiman connection
Part3: bypass immo
Part4: the board explication & conception
Next video will be the brake connexion & global connection
Hi, any Update on this Project yet?
how do you unlock the doors of your car? did i missed this here anywhere?
i'm planning to implant an nfc tag in my hand... and really would like to unlock/start my car (Citroen) with the nfc tag too! :)

Hi steve !
Maybe a NFC ring is better than make an implant ;) A lot of implant are in 125khz, so my board cannot work at this frequency (it's 13.56Mhz-> NFC)
For the door I don't make any board but it's easy to make with the same board than the NFC starter one.
The starter project is finished for me, I need to make the last tutorial video (in french) and after that make a instructable.
I've got to agree with Pierre at the moment on implants - cool idea, but too difficult to upgrade and I don't think the tech is mature enough yet.
there are 13.56MHz implants also
Yes, they're available. Personally I don't think the technology is advanced far enough to warrant having a permanent implant.
Well, I think nfc implant tag are only suitable for the animals identification..Not for the human.. But it's my opinion..
For the price, I have the same tag but in 125khz, I paid less than 1$ for one. I think this one is really expensive.
@MrStein sorry for the very late reply. I would completely love a blank but being from the United states it wouldn't be very beneficial to send one. I would still love to buy one from the nfc store since they do have that in the US now. Maybe putting to together a kit for a build your own would be a good idea. With the added door unlock part that another person had mentioned. Just a thought.
This could be easier to make instructions for assembling for that then translating a complete build from scratch.
Would wiring into an old turn key be easier then a button start?
Any News on this Topic? Is There a buyable Kit or at least a pcb available?
Here are the files :
Don't forget it's not a plug an play solution and you will need to make some operation for finish your NFC starter ;)

@MrStein I was wondering if the keyduimo can be powered off an "always powered" line iin my car and be low powered enough to not drain the battery?
It's a good question, I currently make a tutorial for the doors opener and use a push button to start/stop the KeyDuino.
For the NFC starter, I use the temporary light (that allow 30s of supply to scan the ring/tag).
I don't know how long you can use a battery if you use like 150mA, but I think it's a bad idea to "always powered" something in your car ;)
How, just for your information, if you have any question/ rem related to keyduino; please sen them on the keyduino forum, so me and my friend can answer to your question :)
@MrStein Excuse me, but where is the schema version 4? Links do not work.
It works, you have to click on "téléchargement gratuit (vitesse NORMALE)" then wite the captcha and click on "télécharger ce fichier".
There are only the layout and not the schematics but I can upload both if you want.
@MrStein Je reçus une lettre , je vous remercie! Bien que pas entièrement compris dans le projet. Comment fonctionne l'appareil vérifie que le moteur démarre ?
For now, the motor start with a defined time, there are no check if it's really launch or not.
If you want, you can connect a optocoupler on the pin n°3 of the header "EXT" and connect the optocoupler to the ODB2 pin 7 ;)
Here are the files of new optimised version, click on "téléchargement gratuit" :)
A new 3d printed box will follow, in open source too :D
Hi MrStein, thanks for great idea and great work,
good job my friend,
I am very interested in smart car and trying with the help of micro-computers and network engineering for this,
but I do't have much experience in electronics,
How can I buy this Board?
Hi Parviz, sadly I don't sell any prototype due to legal responsability, if you only need to unlock the car by NFC, you can follow this easy step by step tutorial: http://www.instructables.com/id/NFC-Car-Door-Control/
