Definitively, the consumer market has given MEMs market a big push. I always think that medical appliances and automotive industry are two major markets still. But integrated solutions can help better.
While mobile phone and consumer use is still expanding, the use in automobiles also appears to be expanding and with the addition of new smart systems to the automobile, it should expand even more. So it would appear to make sense to go after more of that part of the market.
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.
