E-Ink's displays are indeed beauties. For my part, I think that the reading experience of an E-Ink display vs. my laptop is an order of magnitude. E-Ink is effortless and strainless; I can't say the same of even my best LCD displays. Now there's a color E-Ink out there, but I haven't seen one. Anyone actually laid eyes on that yet?
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.
