George, one of the leaders in near eye semiconductor microdisplays deployed in military helmet mounted displays is eMagin. Their 25-cent size screens provide 1920 by 1200 x 3 resolution. Medical is one of the applications that could benefit from the resolution. Too pricey for commercial applications today but as manufacturing experience drives the cost down, I would expect the device to be a serious contender for emerging products like Google Glass.
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.
