I enjoyed the slideshow. Wearables World group says it wants to "foster the blend of technology, art and humanity." Humanity, -- does that mean anything specific when they give out the funding or is it a "I'll know it when I see it"? own to handing out money? Here's their startup page.
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.
