Max "I don't fit into my XL Hawaiian shirts" wearing a propeller beanie and eating bacon. Who'd want to miss that. And Sylvie used to wonder why red-blooded American teenage girls would rather be tied up by vampires than pursue a career in engineering. What happened to Sylvie anyway? I used to like her blogs.
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.
