The light in question (I assume) is the traffic light rather than a battery indicator light.
Setting that aside, it seems like this is also a useful part for battery-driven low energy designs. Does anyone know how it compares to the status reported by smart batteries? Are there any possibilities in that area in addition to this automotive application?
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.
