Inertial measurement units keep expensive equipment--like ships and agricultural machinery--on track regardless of whether they can receive GPS signals. This six-degree-of-freedom unit is high precision enough to track devices on a map, and would be augmented by a magnetometer and barometric pressure sensor to determine heading and elevation.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
