@daleste Nowadays trolls are defined as any company or person that invents something and defends its IP. Only big companies should be allowed to invent, manufacture, and sell new products, right? Individual inventors should have no rights, correct? If you can't get the funds to manufacture your inventions, too bad. Hail to the large corporations!
obviously this company is not in the troll category as in "patent trolls". They have developed their own tech, with VC funding and funding from Intel,Cadence,KLA,Qualcomm. If these kinda startups cant defend their investment, then there is no scope for any new startup or innovation, as any big company can come in and steal tech from startups.
The real trolls are companies, just exist to sue other companies without developing own tech. Eg are Interdigial, RPG, Intellectual Ventures..
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.
