@Cabe: One makes money the old fasioned way. Provide better service than the competition. When I learned to program 38 years ago in grade school. the sofware was free. Computers were expensive. then personal computers came a long and we have never finished this argument. I personally think that if it is not physical then how can it ave value?
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.
