Max: In California, we have red-light cameras that basically convict you on the spot. We're likely to have speed monitors soon that will issue tickets for going over the speed limit (because, among other things, they'll generate a LOT of money for the nearly bankrupt cities). And the Toll transponders on cars are now being used to bill for riding in toll lanes, too.
So I'm not sure we'll need the cars to auto-report speeding.
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.
