Max - Writing, playing with some FPGAs and maybe taking a drive to go find a bald Eagle. I took a photo of one in a neardby wildlife refuge a while back it looks like he's got some string or something caught on his foot. I let the refuge people know and I want to go see if I cacn find him flying around and doing okay.
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.
