Nokia had lost the smartphone wagon when the Finnish company sistematically rejected Android as an OS for its devices. Then, Nokia sold the Qt/Symbian bussiness too, inevitably linking its fate to Microsoft's mobile operating systems.
After, building the Surface tablet, this was the logical move for the Redmond guys. Maybe this is a new beginning for Microsoft, but... what shall Intel think about this?
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.
