Using government mandates have it's own risks. FCC requires Faraday cage tests of phone handsets to get radiation certification. But I bet they don't test all possible combinations of Rx/Tx setups, when we have phones with NFC/Bluetooth/WIFI/GSM/... Not to mention emissions from the battery circuits and DC-DC converters (those inductors radiate "something").
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.
