This may be a great improvement. However, the article seems to have some inconsistencies. The statement "Consumer Reports recommends lithium batteries in high-drain devices such as cameras and alkaline batteries in low-drain devices such as remote controls" I think refers to disposable lithium batteries, not rechargeable Li-ion batteries. Also, the statement "Additionally, using the acrylic S020 made it possible for high capacity retention - more than 500 cycles" seems odd; 500 cycles would not scratch the surface in an automotive application. Perhaps this is a misprint?
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.
