How about remote controlled St. Bernards? I'd much rather be carried out by a trio of slobbering poochies than 500 cockroaches..  :-)

The elegance of this solution is that the insect deals with the issues of climbing up and over and around obstacles while the human / external driver concentrates on the end objective. Since the "legwork" has historically been a hard part to program, the insect brain is doing the part for us that we have trouble with!

@harnhua: There're a lot of things we can learn via biomimicry!

I agree -- I'm constantly amazed by the way in which living organisms have evolved the most incredibly capabilities -- the folk screating robots and flying / swiming things are constantly learning from living creatures.

Right. Microscopic job for sure but why not...the smaller it is the more flexible.

You know, honrestly, as we continue to shrink electronics, eventually we should be able to use ants. Right?

Lol, yeah those creatures have insisted to live with us so we've got to find them some work...sounds good to me because i'm imagining for instance in a rescue mission where other animals or people can not get to. Roaches can crawl through the rubble and find people or otherwise confirm their absence.

It's about time we've found a use for these creatures. I'm all for it. I am curious about how effective this will be, though.

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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
