So what? Yes, an all-electric car COULD satisfy about 85-95% of my driving. But then I have to buy a real car in addition to an over-grown golf cart. That just doesn't make an cents.

I don't understand the point of this article or driving a car around. Did we think an electric car was not cappable of driving 15,500 miles? Did we think an electric car was not cappable of driving for eight months? Did we think an electric car was not cappable of driving in seventeen countries? Did we think French engineers were not cappable of driving? I think the real questions for an electric car are: Is it cheaper to buy than a hybrid? It should be as it only has one drivetrain not two. Can I count on that range when it's hot and rainy at night in stop and go traffic (lights on, air conditioning on, heater on, wipers on,radio on) with a five year old battery? And what does the battery cost to change when the time comes? An interesting side note - Judging by the graphic they travled through parts of the United States where electric cars cause more pollution than hybrid cars.

Sorry - there has been a few previous world tours in electric car: Starting from Denmark, June 25, 2010 Danish adventurers and writers Hjalte Tin and Nina Tin Rasmussen have crossed Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Estonia, Russia, Mongolia, the Gobi desert, China, USA, Spain, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Poland and Germany. They completed the record-setting round the world tour on May 7, 2011 after 30.000 km. For more detail Previous in 2008 Louis Palmer did his world tour: Parts Search

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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
