So true re: util companies. Nor would we want them to given current tech. what would be fascinating is to see a modeling effort re: the ramp of energy demand driven by IT over time. Obviously we are going to need some really powerful tech calvary to come to the rescue before the brown stuff hits the fan!
Very thought provoking - thanks Brian. See you tomorrow
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.
