Will you be attending Rich? It would be good to see you again! I've volunteered to be a judge for this competition, and I'll be presenting my Design Pitfalls to Avoid tutorial for equipment designers as well as my Overview of System Grounding and Interfacing tutorial. - Bill Whitlock, president & chief engineer, Jensen Transformers - AES Life Fellow and IEEE Life Senior
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.
