ironically with a lot of corporate environments, tools and platforms have been webized to allow their developers to collaborate in real time and to synch up when they are working on code relating to same, ie versioning, other mechanims to keep programmers from stepping on each others toes. ibm is the earliest company i remember doing that. if anything like a real heavy duty online development environment for outside happens it will come out of one of those internal systems.
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.
