XML fits dual role in device management Special Report 3/1/1999 Post a comment It is easy to look at the rapid emergence of the Internet and conclude that Internet computing standards such as the eXtensible Markup Language (XML) are like hurricanes taking out everything in their paths. But the reality for network-device manufacturers is destined to be much different.
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.
