Are there any good examples of any mature products utilizing nanotubes or ribbons - in electronics - currently in production? Not to be a pessimist, as I really want to see their advantages used in electronics, but there is a big difference between mixing them into products for 20%-30% strength gains and making them work well in electrical applications.
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.
