indeed its regional focused but not as imagined. The whole faculties are filled with researchers from all over the globe. In order to be elected you have to pass very strict exams, backround checks and should face with board for final review. However at the end almost endless support of Kingdom. They are really on it, and i am sure would be successful. Just missing local technology giants where intel fills the gap for now.
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.
