In China, Lenovo is definitely one of the most respected companies among high-tech firms, with its investment in R&D and solid management. While Lenovo also has big ambition for mobile handsets, I think they have a good staying power in the PC market.
So, Lenovo has come full circle to become the largest PC vendor in the second quarter. Can the company maintain this lead? Given the slowdown in China and the evidence that HP has some new systems in the pipeline, can HP get back on top?
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.
