Benchmarks for Whole Phones Needed Blog 8/19/2013 27 comments Benchmarking is a tricky business. There are benchmarks and there are benchmarks. I'm sure I'm not alone in my weariness with reading reports on yet another batch of benchmark results.
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.
