Freescale and Continental AG - interesting. I look forward to seeing what difference the quad-core 32-bit microcontroller will make overall. Technology is advancing so quickly - it's good to see autopart companies like Freescale and Continental and indeed Continental' largest single shareholder The Schaeffler Group staying ahead of the game in difficult times. I just hope that they continue to keep a watchful eye on costing as people's pockets get smaller !!
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.
