Want to participate in the testing of the first Tesla Roadster iPhone App?

The OVMS iPhone App has been largely completed, and has now entered testing phase. Even if you don't have the car hardware yet (as most don't), you can still get the App and try it with the DEMO car provided.

Requirements are:
* Apple iOS device (iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad)
* iOS version 5.0 (or later)

We're using a system called testflight to distribute the testing builds:


iPhone App first-draft published

The first draft of the iOS (iPhone) App has been published to github. This implements encryption scheme 0x30 (RC4, HMAC/MD5 and base64 encoding over tcp/ip). So far, we've got the status and location tabs working. Still outstanding are the car configuration screens and PUSH notifications.

All the above can be found in the github repository in the master branch.

Server published

The car-server-app protocol specification has now been published to github. In addition, we have also published the first implementation of the server itself (conforming to the protocol specification using encryption scheme 0x30 - RC4, HMAC/MD5 and base64 encoding over tcp/ip), as well as demonstration car and server test programs.

All the above can be found in the github repository in the master branch.

Github Repository has been released

We've now published the github code repository for this project. The master branch is at:


So far, today, we've uploaded the vehicle code (in vehicle/OVMS.X - a PIC MP Lab X project), hardware module wiring schematics (in vehicle/Car Module), and common artwork for the Apps (in apps/artwork).
