Imagers set for size, cost Teardown 4/24/2006 Post a comment
It is no secret that cell phones are cheap and small. When you add consumer demand for more functionality that includes higher-resolution imaging for stills and videos, you have a rather interesting case study in the classic engineering discipline of compromise.
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.
