RE smart phones, email and driver safety... We need true email inbox management that’s eyes-free and hands-free and safe for the road. There’s a smartphone app called Talkler —billed as “email for your ears.” It's a free smartphone app that's voice-controlled, and reads your emails aloud to you. There's more info at Talkler.com.

“After you put the phone on your arm rest and turn it on, it will sense the way you drive" Pretty reckless comment here, that phone sitting on the armrest is a projectile waiting to hit a passenger if you have to make a quick stop. But hey as is typical of some college professors that I have known they can only think of resolving one problem at a time and ignoring the overall consequences of their designs. So NSF throws away 50K on a grant to try and fix stupid and these professors keep their tenures?

That sounds like a simpler solution to distracted driving.

For driving distraction, I've seen an app (I think it was from Sprint) that disables texting when the phone detects that you are driving. Parents could put that app on their kids' phones.

I'm sorry, but I really don't see how this will help cut down on levels of distraction for drivers. Having your phone on your car armrest? really? so you can look down at it and check it intermittently WHILE driving?? Unless your phone is safely in your bag, on silent, it is not helping you drive. Just my 2 cents.

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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
