One of my daughters married her fourth cousin. So, her children are not only her children, but her fourth cousins, once removed. My son-in-law's father is my third cousin, so these three (soon to be four) grandchildren through my daughter are also my third cousins twice removed through my son-in-law. I find that kind 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.
