Darpa continues to lead the technical direction of America. From the MOSIS program to this robotic challenge, they demonstrate how tapping and extending the discovery wider to everyone can drive innovation. Few grants to a few school might have included some of the programs noted in this list.
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.
