What's the matter with these idiots? Is there no limit to the extent of intrusion they're willing to impose on others? Now regular employees are going to be made to wear "ankle bracelets," in essence, and somehow everyone's okay with this?
Why do things have to get out of hand before people get p*ssed off enough to clamp down on such nonsense?
Agree, ridicolous idea...why don't they track the money instead? billing in US hospitals differs by 10x depending on the procedure and place where it is done...or track million dollar compensation for hospital executives...or maybe track their time instead! Kris
Indeed! I can understand the difficult of logistic in running a hospital. Efficiency is crucial to low the medical cost. However, I would not feel good if my time in the office was tracked every seconds. What worst is if the tracked person is required to explain every action. Does the tracking system, after all, improve the efficiency?
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.
