Wedge brake design boosts by-wire stopping performance Design How-To 4/6/2006 Post a comment Intelligently controlled electronic brake converts vehicle kinetic energy directly into braking energy, is faster than hydraulic brakes, requires only 10% the energy to operate, and eliminating hydraulic lines and controllers lowers system weight.
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.
