THe idea looks very interesting and open up dors for so many othere industries. However, 11,000 drones, Facebook will need proper help to keep all them apart but linked at that same time. This is a very nice challange ! Also, another challange is having all these drones flying at 65,000 ft, the RF interference. But indeed a very interesting project.
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.
