The first time I seriously objected to a standard was back in 2002 when I first got mixed up in this jitter stuff. A test company had managed to put a compliance technique in a standard that could only be performed on their equipment. Good for their sales, bad for everyone else--as monopolies usually are.
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.
