This article is borrowed from our sister site EDN, where they're joking all the time (they have a whole series of joke lists). EE Times is sending you back to EDN for the rest of the list (we're grateful to EDN for allowing us to post the first 3 jokes.) -- Susan Rambo, EE Times
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.
