For Christmas I recieved my first Arduino. I don't have an electronics background at all, but I always though they looked fun. I never picked one up cause I had no idea what to do with it. Well after getting one and making a light blink I still had no idea. Then one day my son's rc car broke and I thought it would be cool to drive it with the arduino. This is what I came up with.
You record button presses for fwd, left, right. .25 seconds per press. flip the switch and it drives. I'm hooked, so now I'm trying to learn as much as I can to get ready for a local autonomous vehichle comp in June.
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.
