A lot of tablets hinted at or announced at 2011 CES either did not make it to market, or failed to gain much market traction.... even though 2011 was the "Year of the Tablet" according to forecasters.
There is no doubt the tablet market is here, but it will still take a great deal of effort to penetrate Apple's current market share.
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.
