13 Jan Sensors from the Inside Out and the Outside In – 2
part 1 we discussed the sensor selection process and the costs involved. If you haven’t listened to the last episode, you should but it’s not a prerequisite. In part 2 of my interview with Scott Nelson we finish talking sensor costs and move into sensor security, the untold risks when incorporating sensors and the expected evolutionary path sensor tech will take.n
