I have looked over the MISRA C++ standard and by and large it is a very reasonable code standard. Naturally though, I have my disagreements with several restrictions. Most significantly, I believe the rationale based on performance to be unjustifiable. The MISRA standard has as its purpose to prevent and reduce code errors. Performance is not within that directve.
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.
