@Max, From what I've heard, everyone who has gone into space and seen the Earth below them has undergone a life-changing experience (even bigger that when I first discovered the power of beer).
Maybe for most people. Yet, some people may be beyond hope. I can see the jokes on Saturn now: is that really earth-shine or is that just so-and-so's (--insert favorite boviator's name here--) ego glowing?
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.
