I am a novice, but do any of you see this being used to improve a shopping experience; not just finding a store, but giving me a real-time map of the inventory? I know the layout of my local supermarket, but when I go to Florida to visit my daughter, a shopping trip in anunfamiliar store makes me feel like a rat in a maze zig-zagging all over the place. I just want to tell a system what I need and have it map out the most effiecient route within the store to complet my list.
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.
