@Allan Yogasingam: I do have an IdeaPad K1 which cost me less than half the price of an equivalent iPad. I do get a lot done with that and it is an amazing piece of hardware with the Tegra2 processor. My next project is to write an Android application for highend simulations so I can view it on the tablet.
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.
