Academic research was used to being out of touch of industrial/ commercial and yet, leading the technology over 5 years. The gap has been reduced since 2000. The funding by Intel to academic research is a good move to Intel and will potentially attract young talent people to join the field. I wonder how Intel can draw the collaboration of the institutes and people from all around the world to enhance the research and to improve the time to market of the commercial goods.
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.
