Both subtle and big changes were palatable at ET2013 show this year -- among Japanese vendors' booths.
They are more open and willing to pitch solutions they had not developed themselves. It almost looks like they have finally realized that they don't have to invent everything before they go to the market!
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.
