>> The creation of the production facility follows on from the announcement in 2012 that Russia's Rusnano would invest about €40 million (about $50 million) in Mappe
That is part of the Skolkovo plan. Redesign the economy of Russia so that it can be driven my knowledge instead of natural gas and oil. It is possible with this new focus, Skolkovo will get back on track. Yet, MEMS is a tough business. Great promise, but hard to execute.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
