I'm sure no one here will be surprised to learn that our shipping department is incapable of reading this correctly and instead of training or improving the label, management has decided our task is to redesign the product so orientation doesn't matter.
Good news, we finally identified the reason the cartons were being shipped upside down, the loaders were reading the label as "Down". Since changing the label would cost money, we are replacing the current workforce with illiterates and expect the savings to drop immediately to the bottomline.
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.
