It seems as though partial electrification is the beginning of the new wave, a sign of things to come. Once those driving real-life commercial and personal vehicles see the benefits of partial electrification thanks to these mobile applications using fictional vehicles, it will no longer be a matter of imaginination or a leap of faith. We've been waiting a while on the electric car but this kind of partial re-orientation seems to be the real deal.
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.
