Security has indeed fast become an issue with many products and appliances, from computer, electricity to luxury items. Many of these products are essential to our daily lives and we can’t live without them. Imagine the chaos and pandemonium that could result from the failing of such products and appliances. While products these days already have anti-tamper switches in their applications to prevent tampering, we must also keep a vigilant watch and ensure that all the necessary precautions are taken to prevent any possible attacks. - http://www.jzandf.com
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.
