I have long expected that as automakers 'relaxed' their testing by not vetting such complex issues as software, and by accelerating the introduction of more and more technology at lower cost, that a decision would have to be made:
Do we increase cost and slow innovation by testing to what we suggest here to be FAA standards?
Increase cost and weight with backup/redundant systems?
Do we ask buyers to sign a disclaimer?
Do we confine rapid innovation to non-critical systems and fall back to robust, proven mechanical systems for acceleration/braking?
I do like Colin's suggesetion of a big red "STOP" button. If we can have that on a treadmill, why not a car?
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.
