All technology advances run in cycles. A good company will embrace that change and prepare their country to move forward with new technologies.
Unfortunately, some companies get so tied up extracting the last dime out of the old technology that they forget to prepare for the future.
In many ways, Japan is not alone in this problem. Europe too is experiencing a lapse from the old technologies to the new. Unfortunately, they tied themselves up with the EU distribution of industries that locked many companies into not dormant technologies.
You must constantly innovate and move forward. The world will not stop and wait for you.
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.
