I've been watching the wingsuit video and this is really amazing!! I wonder how wingsuit jumpers calculate the velocity and other physical parameters in order to control their flight in a so precise way.
Prior to reading this blog, I watched on TV that a famous Spanish adventurer --Álvaro Bultó-- had died this friday while practising wingsuit in the Alps.
So I think that the thrill of powering up an embedded system prototype is enough for me...
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.
