Danger, Will Robinson Blog 7/6/2016 8 comments You think that rectification of a signal for power is a trivial matter. Beware, some people think they know, but what they know is dangerous. And that’s without hidden gotchas.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
