What if FSL put a camera inside the fridge so one could look at the display on the door to see what's inside. This would save energy. And an LED lit interior, instead of the filament lamp. And how about a speaker phone in the door console so one could talk on the phone while cooking...
This is only the tip of the iceberg. The Tech Lab had a lot of really cool stuff. The concept car also made an appearance on stage during the opening keynote presentation. You can watch the entire opening keynote (and others) through Freescale's website.
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.
