I was having this conversation with Caleb Kraft, author of the article on the tiny development board, about the fact that there is a trend in these super low cost single board computers, but isn't it a drawback that everything is an add-on? Aren't there cases where one would rather just have a tablet with everything, including the display, integrated?
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
