Hopefully they won't be bubonic flea rats.
This is interesting, especially given rats' ability to chew through wires and other stuff like that. I could see the rats chewing into it and if they couldn't get through the case, then at least marking it.
I heard they started with dogs, but they kept retrieving the mines and dropping them at their feet.
They need to put reflective tape on the rats and use the laser disposal system. Once the rat indicates the mine, they can get its position off the reflective tape and then signal the rat to run.
Could be the next big TV game show. Blast the Rat!
Just a thought.
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.
