Hi Rick. I'm working on pretty cool IOT project. I am developing a multi-modal dedicated biometric processor that consumes an order of magnitude less power than current best in class solutions. It will allow for the implementation of biometric authentication, security and encryption for new unrealized form factors using non traditional power solutions in the IOT space.
So... an interesting blog I would like to read would be one that discusses the potential of the M2M and IOT markets and how that its full potential may not be realized unless superior security solutions are developed that ensure that these billions of potential connected devices, which store our personal data, provide safty and security, are accessible by only authorized users.
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.
