The quote from Anthony Murray is interesting. Does CSR have some statistical data on consumer purchase habits of HD TV's? Maybe I'm missing something, but I would have thought the use of built-in speakers on large screen HD TVs would be on a steep decline as most HD sets are marketed along with external home theatre sound systems. It wouldn't surprize me if TV makers move to a "package deal" philosophy and get rid of internal speakers altogether in their large HD sets.
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.
