It is interesting to see how things change. At the beginning of this year (Q1-Q2), everyone was positive about the recovery and results were better than expectation. People were predicting 6-8% growth in 2011,...and now it is negative!
I think we can only hope that 2012 comes as a better year.
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.
