First of all, I would like to set this record straight. Dearl was not even a manager of IT Infrastructure when this was technology researched, bought, and brought into the company. He was only involved in the last 5% of the project. The credit for discovery belongs to Jacob Southard. He found this technology, researched it, procured it for JV and left just a little bit before it was implemented. Also, if you read this article, you will realize that Dearl has no idea of what battery life is like in a UPS. He was a Telecom Director, who used politics to get to a new title. JV didn't keep replacing batteries. That was done, once every 4-5 years. Artciles like this need to be banned. Flywheel technology is great. But the source information on this is false. And yes, I have proof.
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.
