My dad was a dancer with his two brothers on the variety hall stage before WWII -- they toured the length and breadth of Great Britain -- they must have been pretty good, because they were once in a Royal Command Performance before the Queen (and only the best of the best were invited to thing slike that). I have some of their original posters advertising the show on my family room wall.
I bet if he could have seen this 7-foot tall poster billing me as "Max The Magnificent" he would have a great big smile on his face. I miss my dad.
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.
