The lab doesn't look messy to me, it simply looks jam packed. Wires, cables, etc are not bundled up, making their access and debugging easy and adding flexibility. However, I'm guessing that there is a lot of old "junk" in those cabinets in the background...
A messy lab like that means job security. Who would be able to make heads or tails out of it that is not intimately familiar with "the layout". (I am joking and agree that a messy desk or lab usually means a lot is going on).
Very interesting stuff. Thanks for sharing the views.
Agree. A messy lab means real work is being done. Always question a clean engineering desk. If the research in room temperature levitation properties helps us get flying cars, then I'm all for keeping the lab as messy as possible.
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.
