Yes! It's gratifying to see this sort of product being developed. My bet is that it is this type of innovation that will keep health care costs in check, much more so than diddling around with health insurance company models.
The labor content involved in education and in health care is, IMO, why costs in those fields are so high, and always rising. This, and all the other telemedicine innovations, are just the type change in direction that is needed.
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.
