Many times in my long carrier I encountered the phrase "... oh, just one way transmission should be enough!" only to find that one also needs to pause, to put to sleep, to wake up, to query, to change modes, etc., the "transmit only" device.
I don't believe there is such thing as a one-direction communication only!
I'll be glad to hear about such devices.
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.
