@max: What do you think Mrs Crusty would make of all this?
Can you remember Mrs Glum from the radio programme "Take It from here"? It may be before you were a twinkle in your mothers eye? However Mrs Glum was always a noises off and Mr Glum (Jimmy Edwards) interpreted these noise as Mrs Glum disagreeing with his decision or plan. I think the Mrs Crusty we allude to here, would have the same opinion as Mrs Glum, perhaps not very dissimilar to your Mums view on this subject which might be "Silly men"? :-)LOL
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.
