Many trucks still use Compressed Air Brakes(Pnuematically controlled -- Fail locked) and They usually use Diesel Engines with Mechanical Fuel Injection -- the Electronics are just too dicy to make 20K hrs of operation at high temperature -- the bits bake out of the Flash due to the charge leaking off of the floating gate -- Cars only run for 2K-10K hrs
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.
