Thank you, Carolyn, for helping us raise awareness about oneM2M. The first order of business for this global standards group is interoperability, with cellular certification and provisioning (my passions) being equally important topics. Committee work on the former is underway, with initial discussions about to begin on the latter.
oneM2M wants to bring M2M players to the collaboration table from the telematics, intelligent transportation, healthcare, utilities and industrial automation industries. Anyone who wants to have a voice in how devices will communicate with each other globally is welcome.
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.
