Drive for Innovation Chapter 147: Fireside Panel Design West 2012
Brian Fuller hosts a panel on innovation challenges at Design West 2012 with James Truchard of National Instruments, Jeff Lawson of Shockwave Impact, Rich Szczepkowski of SWEMCO and Dave Lentz of Avnet.
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.
