in that case, all suitcases, and their contents, need to be inspected before check-in. That is a huge logistical effort that I doubt the airlines and airports are prepared for. It is further complicated that you may check-in your luggage at a connecting flight before taking the overseas flight. The connecting flight isn't restricted, and may not be the same airline as the US-bound flight.
It's a silly rule. If the device is unpowered, you must pack it into your check-in luggage. Since the new rule is aimed at suicide bombers, wouldn't the device be just as effective being detonated with a timer in your check-in?
There seems to be 3 news in 1 article unless I missed the connection.
The new TSA rule could cause a lot of problem to business travellers. With the rule, who can bring a USB drive? I hope the rule is for short term and will be removed as soon as they find a better way to inspect explosives or other hazard materials.
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.
