Tips and Tricks for Designing Real-time IoT Systems

Available in 42 minutes

IoT devices are becoming more complex and compute-intensive with every passing month. Keeping up with customer needs and requirements requires a design that is not just updatable and robust but also scalable and configurable. 

In this session, we will explore practical tips and tricks for designing real-time IoT systems. Major topics that we will discuss include:

  • Challenges facing IoT Developers
  • Software architecture design
  • Identifying and leveraging execution domains
  • Device security
  • Low-power design techniques

Best Practices for Designing IoT Edge Devices (2020)

Status: Available Now

Development teams are always under pressure to deliver faster and at lower costs, but this is becoming more challenging as system complexity has risen exponentially with features for IoT and Machine Learning. The increased complexity can easily handcuff a development team and lead to not just longer development cycles with higher costs but also lower quality products.

In this session, we will explore best practices for developing real-time embedded systems that will help the modern developer stay on track and produce a quality product within their development cycle. We will explore best practices ranging from how to properly architect a system for scalability, how to manage a development cycle, secure and test a system. We will also discuss best practices for using frameworks and open-source software.
