Abstract

When individuals leave their homes or offices for vehicular journeys, it would often be desirable to remotely prepare their automobiles for driving. For instance, when an office employee prepares to drive home on a frigid winter evening, a remote control device which could start the employee's car and engage the heating system before the employee leaves the office would be a tremendous convenience. Such a device could also remotely program the automobile to start its engine and engage the air conditioning system on a warm day, or turn off headlights which were accidentally left on, or lock doors which may have been left unlocked.
