I'm very curious to see what Brazil does with all of this fiber line, antennae, and small cells post-Olympics (not to mention the stadiums). I think the country will need to severly decrease its import tax on foreign phones or increase its manufacturing power to create higher-tier devices.
Thanks, Rich, for reminding us of the vuvuzela from the 2010 World Cup. It doesn't seem prevalent this time. That's a blessing. Maybe the engineers figured out how to block the sound from the broadcast, as mentioned in this story: Buenos notches - the Filter Wizard vs. the vuvuzela
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.
