Well If I am back in Zimbabwe or South Africa, I mean a traffic light.
After my trip back home today, I was reminded of another Southern African phrase: a Monkey's Wedding. This expression describes the condition of simultaneous sunshine and rain. My Argentinean friend told me that the equivalent expression in Spanish is a "Monk's Wedding". If true, that is a remarkable coincidence.
In addition to the primate festivitiy there were dual rainbows. I have never seen that.
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.
