As one who has had two projects stilted by Tesserra's ridiculous IP claims I find this whole soap opera kind of funny. Poetic justice perhaps. Karma.
Here you have a bunch of IP trolls (who have never made anything) battling it out with a bunch of finance guys (who have never made anything) over the table scraps of a flawed business model using black mail proxy fights.
Would the world be a better place if all this intellect were redirected to a more productive use?
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.
