David - that's a fantastic idea, but I think you are correct a long shot. I was thinking about someone from Medtronics and the hack of their insulin pump (I think it was?) since that is a few years old. K
This should be a very interesting talk. There has been a lot of work on the hardware side to ensure failsafe electronics for automotive. Now that the firmware is becoming a bigger part of the picture, the failsafe tactics used on the hardware side need to be implemented in the software.
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.
