Good morning! With about 20 minutes to go before this hands-on session, We need to remind everyone to go through the "Setting up the STM32F429 Discovery Board..." PDF document posted in the "Special Educational Materials" area above the Live Chat on this page and install IAR tools and ST-LINK drivers prior to the beginning of the session. You'll need to have done so and followed the instructions to set up the board, in order to take full advantage of the course.
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.
