SInce RPi is a non-profit organization for education, I am wondering if RPi may be a victim of its success - in other words is there apoint where Broadcom etc. will not donate more deivces to build more RPi? I do not know the exact number, but I have heard that there are over 2 million shipped to date. That is a lot of devices.
It seems that the Raspberry Pi keeps growing and growing in new and broader applications. It almost seems to have a life of its own, just goes to show you the level of interest in the hobby market for a low cost / powerful / small computing platform. I can't wait to see what is done next..
Man, the Raspberry Pi really is going nuts. I can't believe how many things people are doing with them. I'm probably going to do a mini arcade with mine even though I know it will rarely ever get used.
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.
