Reading this news again just brings nostalgic memories when this was first launched in the market. It was a great technological advancement, revolutionizing media display. I recall seeing such when I visited every exhibition during that period. It was a feat to have such HDTV. But nowadays, more and more technological breakthroughs are coming out in the market better and more energy saving (now the talk of becoming greener and more environment-friendly). It is rather amazing that in over a decade, displays have evolved so fast that we will never know how long we can keep existing displays technology for so long until a new one, and a better one, comes out.
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.
