Surveillance Camera Players under surveillance Blog 6/6/2007 Post a comment We've mentioned The Surveillance Camera Players in this space because they call attention to something many engineers who read this column are well aware of, but that the general public is largely unaware of: the dramatic rise in the use of surveillance video cameras in recent years.
What is a DSC, anyway? Signal Processing DesignLine Blog 6/4/2007 Post a comment TI's claim that it has created the industry's first floating point DSCs is technically true. It is also completely meaningless, because the term "DSC" is so poorly defined.
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.
