You know how bench supplies always have two positive terminals and two negative terminals, and they're always coupled with big (E on its side shaped) shorting links. Well if you remove the shorts, then, run your two thick wires out to the load and two thin wires back to the sense inputs, the power supply will automatically compensate for the voltage drop in the thicker wires.
It seems there is some time before the quadcopter decides it is dead. Can you control the power supply to raise the voltage as a function of the current (and resistence) so that the voltage at the quadcopter is constant (e.g. not at the power supply).
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.
