NO RATINGS
There's always the old classic "Manager versus Engineer" joke:


A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts: "Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?"

The man below replies: "Yes, I can, you're in a hot air balloon hovering 30 feet above this field."

"You must be an engineer," says the balloonist.

"I am" replies the man, "how did you know?"

"Well," says the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct, but it's of no use to anyone."

The man below thinks about this for a moment and then says, "You must be in management."

"I am," replies the balloonist, "how did you know?"

"Well," says the man, "you don't know where you are or where you're going, but you expect me to be able to help. Furthermore, you're in the same position you were before we met, but now it's my fault!"

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.
