security is going to be an ongoing problem. not because engineers and developers do not want it and see its need, but because of corporate accountants and "practical business men" who are still reluctant to invest, nor see the need to, invest beyound what they perceive is the bare minumum - until they get wacked, and then everything changes.l
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.
