The carbon crystalline matrix has been the most frustrating thing to harness, when the breakthrough comes it will hit the electronic industry like carbon fibre hit mechanical design.
How to read the effects of that disruptive technology? Hard to guess which of the myriad scientists will pull it out of the bag; easier maybe to spot who stands to lose, I guess.
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.
