This is a chip that Nicola Tesla would´ve loved. He wanted to distribute energy through air. Wirelessly. Perhaps he was the first "Open source" advocate.
Aren´t we seeing too much wireless lately? Anyone saw Jhony Mnemonic? Lucky for the business that RF radiation hasn´t been proved to harm our bodies.
What is the range over which such wireless transfer can happen without excessive power loss to the environment? and what happens when there is intermittent interference between the charged and the charging stations?
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.
