re security, except for amazon's cloud ec2 offering actually gives some thought to security, from what I have heard. Microchip uses it for its most recent "internet of things" tool. But its mainstream free development tool is not offered that way, although since it is based i believe on Java Beans framework could be easily adapted.
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.
