>> 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. 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.
