It is worrisome that Japan, the country which was so well prepared for earthquake events is struggling so much...imagine what would happen to other areas of the world which are much less prepared for tragedy like this...Kris
Regardless of how advance human technologies are, we can't fight natural disaster. We can at most do our best to prepare for the worse. From all the news I read, Japanese has done a great job. They still need a lot of helps in terms of food and need time to recover. I salute to anyone and any country who are offering helps to Japan.
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.
