Game Changers: Technology Trends to Watch in 2013
As we look ahead to the New Year and what it may bring, we have collected the most important game-changing, cannot-be-ignored 2013 medical device technology trends.
@andrew... Thank you... it is common to see survey respondents provide inputs considering the contemporary 'pain points' and may miss future ones. My guess is this list will look radically different in another 5 years. Probably #10 will dominate?
Very useful information in the link above, thanks! I would imagine software applications using these technologies will start to be more prominent in 2013; in particular, analytics-driven prognostics.
It is very interesting to be in touch with the latest news about technology breakthroughs in medicine and discuss it later with the incentaHEALTH specialists. Thanks for sharing such interesting medical articles with us!
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.
