4 USB ports, all on the back of that huge tv. When will manufacturers realize they need to be placing these somewhere that’s easily accessible?
I recently bought a 60" and mounted it on my wall. Good luck plugging any USBs into the back without actually being able to see what you’re doing or even knowing whether the usb stick is oriented the right way. I ended up having to use and still do use an extension cable to bring the usb port out to the front (although the manual specifically states not to)
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.
