I have read the comments on the original article appearing in Design News. Many of the apprehensions are worth looking at by the designers and if they take all this criticism positively then we will defintely have a viable and road worthy version of autonomous cars on the road in the next couple of years.
Whatever may be the flaws in its autonomous decision making process, I think these autonomous cars will be driven much more safely than those drunk drivers !
So at least when are retruning for a late night party, better hand over control to the auto pilot of your car than take the rosk of hitting somebody or get caught by the traffic cops !
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.
