I switched to reporting my age in hexadecimal a while back. That changes your 57 to 39. When I hit 43, I wasn't sure hexadecimal was a good idea, so I had to think about it: "2B or not 2B, that was the question". [ducks]
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.
