Thanks, zeeglen. It's so true. I keep my phone in my jersey pocket so I can grab it and dicate thoughts that I'd surely lose before the end of a ride. Wonder if I could take your comment into my boss and lobby for company-sanctioned "simmering time" this fall when the trails are truly gorgeous...
Again a wonderful example of solving a problem by letting it simmer on a back burner while the mind is freed with less strenuous thoughts.
A recent comment on Karen's blog "So Much Work, So Little Time for Engineers" from jeremybirch states "2) how many really tough problems do you solve when you are not staring at them but instead you are doing something completely separate, like walking, reading a book, even sleeping?"
Or mountain biking. Good story, Billie.
Aside to the editors/moderators - thank you for blocking URLs in spam comments. Hope it works.
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.
