the state of the law is that corporations are impersonal entities with all the privileges of people, but no expectation of "civility". we tell them they can do whatever they can get away with, and we'll only judge them by stock price and dividends. it's all our fault, and not surprising that the IP protection racket is profoundly damaging to society.
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.
