Under the Hood: Tried-and-true design concepts drive Prius Teardown 5/14/2007 2 comments
Upon tearing apart a Toyota Prius--spanking new from the dealer--what strikes an engineer's eye is that this first parallel drive train gas/electric hybrid car is more like other modern vehicles than not. Ignore the large nickel-metal hydride battery tucked out of sight behind the rear seat; filter out the associated starter-motor-like
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.
