Yes, why not? I think such a artificial pancreas is not more dangerous than a cardiac pacemaker. And medical devices have to guarantee various safety standards like IEC 61508. But I can not imagine to wear such a device at bedtime or during sporting activities like jogging.
If I needed it, I'd certainly be willing to give it a shot. Certainly medical technology is failable (I know someone that had a replaced hip recalled), but enough of it works quite well to make the odds worth it in my mind.
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.
