Thanks for this hilarious story! It not only illustrates the frustration of many big company bureaucratic ways, but also what can happen when non-technical employees acquire just enough technical knowledge to be dangerous.
I hope you invited the purchasing agent down to the dock to show him what a couple megohms looks like when you create it out of 1 ohm resistors!
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
