>> EU united their currency from several individual ones and they are doing great...more countries are thinking about adopting Euro which rivals US dollars now
I am not sure EU is doing great when Switzerland has voted to limit freedom of movement of other EU nations into the country. There are few that will think EU is doing fine at this point based on the currency unification. Without EURO, Greece would have avoided its problems. They will simply devalue their currency. But with none, no instrument to play.
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.
