In a time when, according to the trade press, few US students want to go into engineeering, one wonders why events such as this one are aimed just at girls?
Interesting about the doll house. Turns out, when my brother and I were about 5 years old, dad got us a doll house. We couldn't care less about dolls, but the intent of the doll house was to rig up battery operated lighting for each of the rooms. And it was a lot of fun.
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.
