I have an optical tape reader reference Eeco and I want that once the band (with 8 holes + a small hole "sprocket hole") going on inside I can acquire data written on punched tape. I started by connecting the Arduino Uno board with card reader linked to strip connector 25 pins and I put a program to read the 8 bits of data out of the connector but I'm stuck on the signal generated by SPKT "sprocket holes. "
Is that the data do not change at that the time of activation SPKT signal or not?
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.
