Well, it looks like my Linksys wireless router is heading for it's last day. I had to power cycle it three times when it lost internet connectvity. It's conencted to a DSL modem, which has a strong signal to the ISP. But, I'm convinced that something will go wrong with the setup of a new router.
Should I get an 802.11n router or go for 802.11ac?
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.
