Hurray! I saw the Transit of Venus! The Engineering Life - Around the Web 6/6/2012 20 comments When I arrived home, bits of blue sky were visible here and there, but these bits of blue sky were not in the same place as the setting sun...
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.
