A few decades ago, it was pretty common for people to put differnt carburators, shocks or shifters on their cars. I wonder if we're entering an era where similar activities will be possible in consumer electronics.
I can see it: Buy a set of phsiological sensors to help with some sport. Then Oops, you break a leg. Re-program the device to monitor healing progress.
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.
