Much of the NASA report's review of Toyota's source code ("Appendix A") was redacted. Some entire pages were redacted. I got to see the unredacted NASA report, but only in an RF-secure room with no Internet and no phones (and no metal, belts, watches, or paper in/out). And I can't tell you what I saw there. Little of that is proprietary but lots of it would be embarrasing to Toyota.
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.
