This is similar to what the doctors on a mobile panel I saw a few weeks ago were saying: everyone has a smartphone so that is where the medical digital revolution will be, but there's too much data now.
When I was in college, I always joked that my mother would like to receive the results of a heart rate monitor in her home, so she knew I was still alive! Perhaps I'll get that when my kids go off to college in four or five years...
Segars on stage: "I've been CEO 4 months and people are asking what will define your tenure...lower cost chips, sw will create a new era of devices and servcies." So the theme is innovation....no surprise!
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.
