It is always a sad situtation to tell some client the IP they had developed for 500 on the cheap would likely take another 90K to turn into a well written set of requirements, and a testbed, and verifiy and validate the IP for the industry they were targeting -- Safe stuff that is complex costs quite a bit of money, and most of the errors that escape are traced indirectly to lack of time, tallent, or treasure
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.
