E-paper will definitely take off once the prices become competitive with tablets. I see how convenient it can be when it comes to placing it in a carrier. Hats off to whoever came up with this huge advancement of technology. I believe the expansion of the market will not just be a Western one but a global phenomenon with technology hungry industries like South Korea and Japan lapping it up. I really look forward to the day when e-paper becomes common.
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.
