If the device had adjustable elements, then by providing increased motion resistance, the garment could provide greater power generation and a workout to the user. People could select the mode according to their level of personal energy and their current need for electrical power.
This is very interesting and could lead to a whole new segment of the fashion/green industry. However ti also needs to be investigated with a mind to harmful or helpful effects on the wearer due to the electro-magnetic field that is generated.
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.
