Good article, and comes as no surprize that anything that has to be procured with more than a simple purchase order. It is bound to cost many fold higher do to procurement burden and other unrealted costs.
My final anaylsis is the success of 16/24 (2/3)working audio channels would get a failing grade in the consumer world. But a pad on the back for effort.
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.
