Is this company related to A123? How many lithium-ion batteries technologies are there and how do they compare? I have just read an article that Chinese government is reducing its subsidy to electrical car technology because none of the technologies it supported lived up to its promise.
"The $125 million funding includes private equity investment and support from China where, in addition to a manufacturing plant Boston-Power plans to put down R&D and electric vehicle battery engineering facilities." Seemingly, China is putting a lot of resources into energy of the future. What has US done?
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.
