When we wrote the original story about CSR-Samsung deal, a lot of you who came to the forum had questions -- mainly focused around "so what does this leave CSR with?"
I had the same question. So, I went back to CSR and asked the CEO some questions. And above is what I found out.
The agreement looks like a lot more complicated than I had originally assumed.
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.
