The Korea Electronics Show has come a long way since its inception ~40 years ago.
The first ones were held in the National Publicity Halls near the Palace and generally open to the public as well. Grandmothers with babies strapped on their backs toured the exhibits right along with the techie types. The place was relatively small with narrow aisles.
I continued to go to those shows as it moved to Yoido Island Exhibition Center, then on to the Convention & Exhibition Center(COEX) in Seoul.
I haven't been to the Kintex venue.
The show was on my tour of the other Far East electronics shows held each October, e.g. Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. Having them all in one month was convenient for buyers as well as sellers, even though time consuming and tiring.
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.
