It is more and more difficult to have innovation on the gadget. But this the air for apple to breath with. I hope Apple can devote more on the innovation, not only on features but also on over user experience (to me a long battery life and cooler device is also important). Of course, if there is a breakthrough on the way people use the device, it will be a big step ahead. I hope they won't just compete with Samsung and like by pushing more and more me-too model but somethings that are really jaw dropping.
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.
