chanj, these are all really great questions. When you look at countries where mobile TVs have been successful, you'd quickly realize there is one thing in common: "free-to-air" broadcasting.
If mobile TV broadcast remains free, it's a huge attraction to consumers.
Mobile TV is inherently personal. Consumers do like having his or her own screen -- regardless the screen size.
Over and over, trials and studies in the past proved that consumers, provided with mobile TV-equipped handsets, loved using it -- not necessarily on the road, but in a kitchen while cooking, or in a bedroom.
In other words, it is not necessarily the "mobility" part that consumers love. It's the convenience of their own personal screen they cherish.
What would be the major factors to drive the mobile TV market? Is it the mobility? Or the content? As a consumer, would you be interested in having a TV on your palm 24/7? What would be the driver to you to consider having a mobile TV?
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.
