I guess they are going after the billions of golf balls that don't yet have IP addresses. Just think if every golf ball could talk to each other and to all the golf clubs knocking them around. Lots of ways to improve your game with access to all that data.
What is the best way to avoid that sand trap? Just ask your golf ball to talk to all its friends. Maybe your club has some advice on your follow thru. I see a big market for the Internet of Golf Things (IoGT).
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.
