Thank you for digging into the gadgets and sharing the valuable information. This kind of exercises helps in learning about the existing and new sensors. For example I did not know about BMP180 (barometric pressure sensor). Visiting the website of Bosch again I learned that they offer another one in the same line card - BME280, which is a Barometric Pressure, Humidity and Temperature sensors integrated in a small eight pad package with SPI/I2C interface.
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.
