I'm English and as as result I know very well that to say that Edinburgh is in England is very offensive for many Scots. Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, which is itself a country (even if it is not independent). The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is the official name of the UK and Great Britain is the collective term of the regions of England, Scotland and Wales, NI was a later addition.

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.
