Isn't this the time when back to school leads to nice revenue growths and reduction of stockpile of inventories? This taken in conjunction with the Fabs lower than expected earnings speaks of lackluster mid year and has ominous signs if continued. Some economists have been warning of the faltering of economic recovery, which I am afraid is very scary when clubbed with the uncertainity in EU over Greece and the earthquakes in 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.
