@colin: So all they are doing is weaving practicality to usability. Just like Weave plans to churn out turn-key industrial software and cloud integration, lets see how that is accomplished in the coming months/years.
docdivakar: Good observation about the modules. Weaved's business plan it not to sell modules--that's Gentek's me-too job--but to integrate cloud-based connectivity into Gentek's modules so that all developers have to do is their specialized non-"me-too" software. Thanks for the comment.
Weaved has more IoT modules on-the-way with different functionality, or you can request specialized modules. For instance, check out the last slide called the "Mole" camera from Astak which has surrounded the camera with white LEDs so that it can work in complete darkness.
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.
