Hey Max, you may be going about this all wrong... I just saw that Realtor.com is putting out a list of zombie-proof estates, or anti-zombie strongholds. For 10 mil or more, you can be an island of safety when the zombie apocalypse strikes.
This does look handy ... the thing is that if I knew that "bad times" were really coming I would stock up on a load of stuff -- but not knowing means you feel a bit silly (not that anyone is laughing when you start waving a battle axe around :-)
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.
