s krisi said in Re: Fixing the Symptom not the Cause "6/11/2014; Perhaps the death numbers are declining but it is still 40,000 people annually in North America alone...much larger than all plane crashes that people are so concern about...noone talks about car deaths, it is so common" It may be that 'car crashes' are so common that there is a lack of wanting to hold these speeders, texters, DUI'ers, ... etc accountable. Just too much trouble and even the PA State Police seem weakening to this trend. NY has thousands of tickets for their no texting, cell calls.. etc but none for the new PA law. Why?]
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.
