Open Source in Space: Flight Software Workshop Begins The Engineering Life - Around the Web 12/9/2013 1 comment Open-source code and its role in spaceflight software is one of many interesting topics to be discussed at the Flight Software Workshop this week. Here NASA JPL developers tell EE Times what's in the code.
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.
