"Acer Inc., Fujitsu Ltd. and ZTE Corp. will make smartphones using Windows Phone 7." I am wondering where does this leave Nokia, who sold their soul to MS WP7. I mean these manufacturers like Acer,ZTE are going to price their devices very low. So Nokia will have a tough time with low cost competition eating up their high end market.
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.
