Interested to see what the "hardened" secure version of Android is. We do need a robust kernel that can handle separated critical processes. One such need would be to convince the FDA that such devices are suitable for medical aggregation platforms. Such a platform would need to include hardware MMU.
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.
