NASA has shifted its focus since retiring the shuttle to going beyond earth orbit with the new heavy lifter with a dull name (Space Launch System). In the interim, the Russian Soyuz will ferry astronauts to the ISS while NASA validates the ability of commercial suppliers like SpaceX to carry cargo -- and eventually crews -- to the ISS.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
