What? Giving a guest lecture at the university in Durban, South Africa -- I'd love to (as long as they are paying for airface and hotel etc :-) -- I've been to India and China and Japan and ... and a bunch of other places -- I gave a lecture at the University of Oslo in Norway in Feb of this year -- but I've never been to Africa
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.
