@Sheepdoll "Are we too dependent on such tools such as Matlab, and pSpice"
Try this one: I asked two engineering managers - one HW and one SW, what they thought of the concept of going on line to find canned solutions. I was astonished that both of them answered very positively about that prospect. My response: then why bother hiring/paying engineers? Just find the most resourceful and computer savy seekers of information you can find for min wage. They're reply: And then what? Hmmmm.
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.
