I dont understand why the image http://i.cmpnet.com/techweb/lead_art/china_05.jpg would be considered a negative one.
It seems to show a series of generic blocks - perhaps skyscrapers - with one taller than the others carrying the flag of the People's Republic of China.
This is not a negative story. I meant the picture they used with the story. http://i.cmpnet.com/techweb/lead_art/china_05.jpg
Some editors like this picture so much that they always use it whenever they report news about China.
Seems that is the only image they want people to have about China.
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.
