A skeleton walks into a bar and says to the bartender, "give me a beer and give me a mop."
A sandwich sits down at the bar and the bartender says, "sorry. We don't serve food here."
A snail crawls (slithers) up to the bar and the bartender picks it up and gives it a 'twink with his finger and out the door it flies. About a year later, the same snail slithers back up to the bar and says "Hey! Why'd you do that?"
How about the one where an big muscular Irishman walks into a bar carrying a humongous pig under his arm.
"Good Grief," says the barman, "that's a magnificent beast, where did you get him?"
The pig looks up and replies "I won him in a raffle!"
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.
