In similiar vein, how was it that Underwriters got bootstrapped into the essential and widespread product certification businesses? Was there some sort of industry-wide assessment for funds to establish the lab? Can the extra costs currently seen in retail prices for cars be transferred into assessment funding for an independent testing laboratory, so that there is no net increase in the car price?
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.
