Shrinking the power consumption is good for a variety of reasons. At the same time, the software needs to shrink too so the system can shrink. By attacking the problem from all directions, wireless microgateways can be more easily achieved.
Unison OS offers a complete micro wireless gateway solution today, off the shelf, running on most popular MCUs and MPUs. It runs a broad set of IoT protocols. See www.rowebots.com for details.
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.
