Future Technologies to Help You 'Live Long and Prosper' Design How-To 5/22/2002 Post a comment Inspired by a thought-provoking panel on Killer Technology Applications at the recent Custom Integrated Circuits Conference, TechOnLine's Jim Lipman looks into his crystal ball. What he sees (and discusses) are tomorrow's superstar applications and the kinds of devices on which they will run.
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.
