There is a global aggrement that seat belts reduced fatalities in cars. And there is an emerging aggrement that MEMS with all the inertial sensors are doing same in modern cars with the stability control and air bags. Gyros and XLs will continue to shape car safeties for a long time.
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.
