Whiel renovating my house we made many many changes along the way.Drive the contractor crazy. They had to rebuild the upper tun on the new staircase because my wife didn't feel safe walking down. The bottom of the staircase has a turn but that was OK. No drawing can give you the feel of something.
Hand drawings? Are you for real? When we did our home renovation, I made several drawings for the contractor using the draw program that comes with OpenOffice. The architect did his entire design by hand.
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.
