The user interface in this application will be critical. If an intuitive interface is developed that allows the instructions to be scaled, overlaid on the task, and easily controlled by a working individual, this could become the next killer app for repair technicians and training users.
The capability and application of wearable electronics are still unknown. Google's youtube videos have a couple interesting show cases. Whether they will become a popular apps is still to be seen. Yet, the application area as suggested by the article are very interesting and most like be applicable to a lot of areas.
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.
