The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to change the world by connecting devices in larger, more interoperable systems controlled by software and analytics. The proliferation of device, software, and analytics will drive significant changes in most industries, from shipping and transportation to construction and manufacturing. They will even change the way we maintain our own health and fitness. The opportunities to reinvent existing objects into connected devices that include sensors and transmitters are abundant. However, these opportunities are accompanied by technical challenges. How do we make tools and machines that have not changed in form or function for decades into electronic devices that are smart, connected, and compliant? Further, how do we ensure that the devices we design in the lab are able to perform in the field?
