Technically Bolstered Wescon Returns to San Francisco Design How-To 7/23/2003 Post a comment Sporting a beefed-up technical look, Wescon 2003 returns to San Francisco's Moscone Center August 12-14. Jim Lipman previews this year's Wescon, which leveraged it's strong IEEE ties to develop a conference offering interesting keynote addresses, panels, and presentations on a broad range of timely technical topics.
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.
