Is is amazing that we still RFQ's on some of the Asian databases (in China and HK) directly from US army Navy contacts !. Until the Military and it's contractors wise up they will continue to have these basic problems !. Unless these RFQ's are 'traps' to expose some of the dubious suppliers !, then it is spot on !! and the right thing to do !.
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.
