Thanks for your interesting article. There are many medical devices that need to be revisited over the next few years and have preventive protection as it pertains to data security or security in general. Remember, technology is everywhere. Technology is used with printers? Watches? The list goes on and on. So engineers and medical professionals need to work together and come up with medical designs to address security.
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.
