What is the coverage of a car radar system? Can it detect a sign post at every point along the rear bumper when you are backing up? What is the vertical coverage? Can it detect any hight or low object that would hit the car if you continued backwards? It seems that blind spots in the detection systems could lead to unexpected accidents if drivers depend upon them as they back up.
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.
