If the minimum batteries are installed in electric cars and you just rented an additional extension pack for long trips this would make the cars cheaper up front exellerating sales.
this does a few things:
1) increases sales of e vehicles toward criticcal mass.
2)Lowers price tag (badly needed)
3)rent extenders as needed. (Could give 2 free weeks a year of battery rental as part of car purchase.
3)Allows for improvements in batteries to be rolled out and used instead of purchasing a new car with new technology.
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.
