Saving software development costs could be accomplished by moving to Android, without the enormous loss of profit due to paying Microsoft for each copy of Windows Phone 7. No. That doesn't explain the decision. Nokia's new CEO Stephen Elop OWNS STOCK IN MICROSOFT, for whom he is a "former" executive. Occams razor test implies that Elop made the decision to benefit himself at the expense of Nokia stockholders. Microsoft has already spent half a billion dollars marketing their outdated and poorly implemented phone operating system. Nokia will not benefit from this sell out by their traitorous CEO.
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.
