Wasn't therre a little controversy about the measurement aspects of Phelp's win? I think the cameras shows that the competitor could have touched the end of the lane first. But there is a switch that has to be lightly depressed from the swimmer's momentum when they touch it, and the competitor was stretched out trying to touch the wall first, and slowing down. Phelps gave the wall a strong jab, and won.
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.
