This is a really cool device and project. I can imagine many other uses for the AirDog beyond sport practice... but the I really like it because it makes me recall some videogame heroes ;-)
But I'm a bit concerned about the legal issues around using drones. In Spain, the Government plans to establish a new "drone driving license": you must be a certified "drone pilot" in order to fly your own device.
Just an example: this week a guy was fined for using a drone in order to record the Running of the Bulls at Pamplona's Sanfermines.
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.
