Good point: startups have limited resources so it is important to apply critical analysis when deciding where to allocate them. The key is to be open-minded about all opportunities worldwide: the initial investment is higher in a remote location but the ROI might be better. These are the tough decisions startup execs have to make.
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.
