Final note: Clearly, Gordon Moore in 1965 showed an uncanny ability to predict the future. Based on just a few hours of History Channel viewing, it's possible to conclude that the ancient Mayans, Nostradamus and others who lived hundreds of years ago also did. Perhaps some of today's semiconductor industry market forecasters should borrow some of these ancient techniques and incorporate them into their models?
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.
