Good point DrQuine...unless the lighting is outdoor there will be little savings in dissipated power (only during summer) as you need to heat your room anyways...perhaps you gain something in LED reliability
While the need for light and energy conservation make sense in the far north, it is ironic that the place where the extra heat being generated might be a benefit (to heat the space) is where the vendor is minimizing heat production! I hope they find lots of buyers as well in warmer climates.
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.
