This program is awesome. Is there a website where we can see the progress and feedback generated by the participating organizations and their volunteers? In addition, can they make a scalable, localizable project that could be applied in various parts of the world, both for developed and developing countries? What are the goals of the project in addition to reducing CO2 by 2050? I'm excited to see a communications being involved to translate the technological benefits to folks not at R&D level.
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.
