Of rockets and robots Industrial Control DesignLine Blog 6/1/2005 Post a comment As the economy seems to be stable if not moving upward and manufacturing technologies surge forward, job and career issues remain a central issue for design and manufacturing engineers. Last month, moves by a pair of industry groups highlighted the complex issues facing today's technical workers.
Microsoft Moves In Blog 6/1/2005 Post a comment Microsoft's new POS version of Windows Embedded is a clear sign of things to come--though not of the ultimate outcome.
From SID, 3D and more Blog 6/1/2005 Post a comment I was pleasantly surprised to see the extent to which small-time, garage-style inventors are still a factor in what is arguably the most cutting-edge aspect of video displays: 3D.
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
