How to design a low power wireless sensor network Design How-To 7/17/2009 Post a comment Driven by the demand for "green" technology and better use of power, a new generation of extreme low power wireless networks is being developed for use in machine to machine networks. With this in mind, a new approach towards truly wireless networks is needed.
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.
