World's First Wireless Mesh Network for Propller Beanies: CapNet
Imagine the ultimate battery-powered motorized propeller beanie
cap, which forms a wireless mesh network with other nearby
beanies! CapNet was deployed during the 2013 Design West Conference in San Jose, CA with more than 200 caps on the network.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
