Sony PS3 controller predates Wii by a slight margin, but just did not advertise its use of motion sensing, and today all modern smartphones and tablets include motion sensing. Latest on the scene are Smart TVs which require motion sensing in order to "point" at buttons on the screen.
Wii controller was pretty much the first among all to use motion sensor as a remote controller. 6 years after launching of Wii, motion sensors are used primarily in remote control and gaming. What are the other products that are using motion sensors?
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.
