Rick, on slide 3, at the bottom of the second figure, there is a typo: "Securoty is the top issue."
I have to agree with @Bert22306's comment below -the question needs to be precise enough to get useful data that has some basis for interpretation and conclusion. Otherwise, Mark Twain's famous comment on Statistics applies!
That chart seems silly to me. It shows a classic response when someone asks a question that doesn't make a lot of sense. A nice bell curve.
Everyone should be familiar with M2M and IoT, because it's been all around them for at least 20 years. And I mean "at least," because anyone associated with computers in any way, or the military, or factory automation, has seen M2M and "clouds" for a lot longer than that!
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.
