Since human beings survive extended stays in the Space Station, I'm not surprised that ruggedized electronics can do so. Nevertheless, it is nice to have an opportunity to evaluate the components on their return. Obviously the shuttle vehicles also provided an opportunity to evaluate their components after multiple trips into space.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
