I work in a building where floors 1-8 are parking, and floor 9 consists of offices & labs. Why does everyone who parks on floors 1-7 take the elevator to the 9th floor, but those who park on floor 8 feel compelled to walk up the stairs?
Are they trying to prove their fitness and/or lack of laziness? (It's not working)
This magic threshold between 1 vs. 2-8 flights of stairs is quite puzzling.
Me? I take the elevator from all of floors 1-8.
Why is it Lois Lane doesn't recognize Superman in the office when he's wearing a business suit and glasses, but a wife can spot her hubby trying to sneak back into the house in pitch darkness after a late night at the bar?
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.
