So the point here is to replace PC with Rasberry Pi board, correct? But you need to have a monitor and keyboard to input some info and observe what you are doing. That sounds like you are effectively building a small cutom PC out of the Rasberry Pi being a new motherboard, did I get that right? Kris
The Raspberry Pi does not need a keyboard or monitor; it can run "headless", and you can ssh into it to interact with it. I think the more general point is that once you provide a web interface to anything, you can interact with it from varied clients (PC, handheld, ...), and you can interact remotely. The oscilloscope could directly provide a web interface, which would obviate the need for this Raspberry Pi intermediary. Our routers and other appliances already do this; presumably oscilloscopes etc. will do so, soon.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
