It seems wrong that seismic engineers were tried and convicted for refusing to say whether tremors indicated that a larger earthquake was imminent. Since when have seismic engineers been able to predict earthquakes?
How entertaining--engineering certainly does have its share of rogues! I'm surprised that John Delorean didn't make the rogue's gallery here - or was he excluded because he wasn't actually convicted of nefarious deeds?
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.
