It was a pleasure meeting with Jeff McCreary in Seoul. He is very outspoken and approachable. While I believe that the former CEO had planted some of the key seeds for IDT's future growth, what IDT might need in the next phase is someone like mcCreary, who could be a visible advocate, to raise the company profile.
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.
