@David: Can't wait for the book. Australia drives me (and I think would drive you) scatty with their misplaced (or missing) apostrophes and other grungy grammar.
I've been thinking about it for ages now. I have copious notes of the things I want to discuss. The problem is finding the time. I Had a burst of energy after Christmas and whipped out the entire contents list and the first seven chapters in about 4 weeks ... but then I got side-tracked by this and that. I need to rouse myself to another thrust ... after I've had a beer :-)
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.
