Could spider bots become a normal, acceptable part of traffic and a reasonable means of transportation? They seem to require a great deal of maintenance and care. And they may not be the most efficient or reliable of vehicles. But they do get you from point A to point B, and the aesthetic factor cannot be denied.

Looks like herculean strong. Will all these spider bots will work on my street with -25C, lots of ice and snow?

Hi Max, I'm with you, how cool would that be. I'm surprised 2 of them were simple cam driven units, doesn't scale up well from toys I don't think.

Wow. The John Deere walking machine is very impressive. One joystick to handle movement in all directions suggests lot's of code!

I saw one of these at the USA Science and Engineering Fair a few years back - it was pretty amazing. As I recall, the "driver" had some difficulty with the steering, particularly with those tight turns!!!

I so want one of these -- I can just imagine sitting in it taking a stroll around our neighborhood -- and seeing the expression on my 19-year old son and his friends' faces...

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.
