I must say at the moment I feel rather like a general (stop laughing) in the 2nd half of the 19th century. Up to his ears in battle with cavalry charges and fixed formations without enough time to evaluate the gatling gun.
This product looks great and as soon as I can find the time, I am going to have to spend some time evaluating and seeing whether it can do what I want. I wish there was some kind of video or app note that can hand hold me through whether this will work for me or whether I will have to have something written for the processor that I use (and incur some of the costs discussed).
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.
