Hacking Your Tesla? There's an App for That

As cars are becoming increasingly automated, expect to see more side projects popping up like the free open source app VisibleTesla. The app, created by Joe Pasqua, an engineer based in San Carlos, Calif., lets Tesla Model S owners track the status of their vehicle's systems and schedule automated commands.

In an interview with the MIT Technology Review Pasqua said VisibleTesla allows you to unlock the doors, control the heater and air conditioner, open the sunroof, control the car's charging function, and gather GPS information. The software runs on PC but can be configured for Web access, allowing Telsa owners to use it from their car's onboard web browser. It works similarly to the official Tesla iPhone and Android apps.
