I have thousand of hour flying airplanes. Batteries have always been a problem. There are many aftermarked products that are designed for aviation. They range from better cables and controllers to the batteries. Too many times the cheaper part was used by the company and we the user need to buy a more expensive part to fix the potential problem.
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.
