The IoT is comprised of all kinds of edge devices. To date, most traditional IoT devices have been embedded systems, such as utility meters, asset trackers and surveillance cameras. However, home thermostats, alarm panels, parking meters and vending machines belong to a class of IoT devices in which a human interface is a primary feature. These devices share specific requirements, including: 

  • Touchscreens, cameras (usually two), microphones, speakers
  • Robust CPU/memory/storage structures
  • Consumer industry operating systems (Android) 
  • Battery charging logic, short-range radios like Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, and satellite positioning (GPS/GNSS)

A trending IoT technology offers all this functionality in stamp-sized modules powering devices that look and feel like consumer products. These modules are called cognitive or smart modules. This webinar will review the leading use cases for smart modules and cover everything you need to know about this latest IoT technology area. You will learn:

  • Advantages and disadvantages of product life cycle management for a module with all this functionality
  • Creating requirement specifications for smart modules for human interface IoT devices
  • The challenges of smart module integration and the importance of vendor choice
  • Security considerations for designing devices with smart modules
