Yes - we sell the 'the ability to treat patients' with our products to our customers over the web. They pay, we download a certain number of treatments into the system to allow them to deliver the treatments. Often we place the equipment of free, but make money by selling the tretments.
A group in China learned to hack the code that allowed download of treatment, as was selling that hack to our customers. Big problem, but we did finally get it resolved.
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.
