A more fundamental change to the industry is being driven by the move to connect cars with each other and roadside infrastructure via the dedicated automotive WiFi standard 802.11p.
As a reporter, this is something I hear about often. While I think I grasp the concept on a high level, it's not clear to me how a number of different wireless "communication" technologies -- in addition to 802.11p -- will play into the V2I, V2V and V2X communication. What are the things that still need to be developed, and how far away are we from that reality?
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.
