When you buy an automobile. You rely on the manufacture to give you the most reliable vehicle available. 100 years ago this may not be the case, but today, we expect it. If there is anything that causes us to have less than a perfect experience, it will cause recourse. I am surprised that Toyota is seeing this, but it is normal to see companies rise and fall.
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.
