Back in 1960, when I was a young EE, I was told then there was a great more energy storage capability in a tablespoon of gasoline than in a typical car lead acid battery.
Question to anyone out there. Where are we now as to the gasoline tablespoon vs the car lead acid battery?
To me that is the bottom line as to 100% electric cars ---- the batteries. So far I am for the hybrid approach for electric cars.
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.
