Hi Sven -- the sad thing is that I can imagine younger engineers saying to themselves "Bell Bottom Trousers -- what are they?"
I recall having ones that wrere 22" around the bottom -- looking back that really was a pretty ridiculous style (not as silly as the platform shoes, of course) -- now I'm wondering what my father thought about it all :-)
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.
