@Duane: If it's not visual, can it still be called augmented reality?
Most certainly- but we tend to refer to AR experiences that don't require real-time rendering as "computer vision", which is really utilizing any of the sensors (including the camera) to access information or trigger actions. Image recognition and visual search is a very good example of this. Also using sensors like GPS (the Nokia example mentioned earlier) is a popular form of Computer Vision.
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.
