One particularly troublesome aspect of multiple failure detection in aircraft has to do with each alarm, being required to be distinctive, combining to increase the stress and workload so much that the emergency checklist could not be completed in time to prevent the crash. One other very infamous mission to mars failed because of a metric-imperial mismatch in dimensional units so the Mars Observer plowed the fields of mars instead of orbiting.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
