Testing GPS Receivers with Real-World Data Design How-To 11/3/2008 Post a comment Testing GPS receivers with recorded signals has several benefits over traditional simulation or drive testing approaches. Not only does this approach introduce real-world impairments, but it does so in a manner that is repeatable.
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.
