This is marvelous technology. Caltech and UC Irvine have been developing it for years. Not degenerate, though, so higher performance not possible.
A new generation of symmetrical devices are coming out soon with drift rates as low as 0.02 deg/hr and ARW of 0.003 deg/ rt hr and thermally compensated by a firm in California.
For crash prevention the outputs of MEMS sensors need to be foolproof, since only milliseconds can make the difference between life and death during a major accident. ADI's quad-differential gyros use redundancy and differential noise cancellation to nix any sensor mistakes before they happen.
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.
