IEEE's mission is to collect your money. You can't download papers unless you;'re a member of the IEEE society that published it. In my position as an editor, I often need papers outside my membership. That reminds me to get back in the IEEE I&M Society. I dropped it last year when I changed jobs, but now I'm back covering T&M.
With all the open source initiative, I wonder why IEEE hasn't embraced it. At the minimal, I think they should allow member to access any paper older than 1 year old and public to have access of any paper more than 5 years old. Agree?
I thought about that when writing the piece. Sorry, we're not at 100G for mobile devices. In fact, we're actually not yet at 4G. that will come once LTE-A and other technologies are more fully deployed, which the marketers will call 5G. 5G is already on the drawing board, which the marketers will call 6G or 7G.
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.
