Before I headed to the cinema, I was worried that the film Wall-E would suffer hypocrisy by the only mechanism that would make its production possible. Yes, it is Disney. For example, you can buy Wall-E shirts, hats, toys, and everything that might be compacted into a garbage skyscraper seven hundred years in the future. But, whatever, Wall-E is cute. And Wall-E mechanism is very popular now.
If you are an environmental protector, you must take it. It can be used as a promotion gift to volunteers as a reminder of environmental protection. Of course, Wall-E and Eve plush toys are a perfect group if you can understand their love story.
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.
