So this circuit will tally all of the votes in your kingdom and feed them into your castle. Uh--thanks let me read the spec again...right-o, this is a monarchy, yes. Okay, so this circuit allows you to enter the king's will into this input, and then, voila, it is output to each and every citizen in the kingdom instantly!
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.
