Historically apprenticeships had issues. Most were used as drudge servants (basically worse than slaves. emptying chamber pots, cleaning) Masters were lothe to share secrets. At best one could marry the master's daughter and hope to join family. Usually what happened was that the apprentice, physically assaulted the master when the master got too old to fight back.
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.
