I have thousands of raw photos stuck on various devices and memory cards. I have this fantasy that someday I am going to go throw them all and get prints made of the best of them. I used to do this every few months. But the collection has gotten away from me. With so many digital photos around, the ones worth keeping are obscured.
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.
