you seem to think that the people who are actually working on the problem are stupid.
Nope, I just think the idiots here are idiots (not that everyone's an idiot, but the idiots are, by definition).
So how do wash the wings right after takeoff?
How do cars wash their headlights? How do gliders do it? How do in-flight de-icing systems work?
THe point is some idiot asking a stupid question with 1,000,000 answers can't think of any of the answers, so he assumes the answer is hard. It isn't. Doing it cheaply, reliably, and with no weight may be harder, but those are implementation details, not big picture.
Similar are the mobile-phone network IoT car-based devices, a number of which will "IoT" when back at base, through secure WiFi to a private server, with no data in the loop *ever* traveling over the Internet (unless the customer buying the solution goes out of their way to send things over a WAN, that's still not Internet connectivity, just using the Internet for a private WAN).
The level of control around IoT at the moment prevents any IoT from working over the Internet. The IoT is when every device in your house is connected (probably IPv6, with a
There should be a tachometer there.
Given that most cars are automatics, there's no need for a tach anymore.
And the tach should be on the HUD, a bar at the top of the windscreen running from right to left that turns red at 90% of redline, and flashes at 100% of redline. The reason the tach is front and center (and big) is so that you don't have to look at it. Your peripheral vision can pick up the location with sufficient accuracy for timing shifts and such. The speedometer should be in the same spot so you can watch the road with peripheral vision while staring intently at the speedo to determine whether you are just before or just after the desired speed.
It needs to be huge because the 0-200 mph speedos (if it's on your speedo, your car can do it, right?) have the hashes from 0-70 take up about 1/3 of the usable space (which is of about 2/3 of a circle). As bad as NMSL was, at least 0-85 MPH speedometers were useful for helping you decide if you were on the legal or illegal side of 55, without having to break out a protractor. Though, that doesn't apply to Porsche and a few others that kept the same 0-200 speedo, but didn't print numbers or hashes on the last 2/3.
Well the job spec he gave isn't quite a manager, but it's more than a developer. Maybe a team leader/architect/analyst?
What? Are you saying that those beancounting corporate MBA bastards have outsmarted a guy on the internet?
That simply can't be true.
OK, I'll bite.
... a if it's designed by Dice, the box will cover the moose.
the man goes full comando and updates everything live without testing.
That's an assumption on your part. Sure, it may be implied, but isn't confirmed. I've seen places large enough that their OS provider would test on their behalf. So he can claim "no testing" and the answer is it was tested. Well tested. I've seen it done before.
Protip: when you see a word you don't understand (in this case it was "perception") don't just ignore it - ask your mom what it means or look it up in a dictionary.
I can think of 100 ways to solve this, so when people make it sound hard, that just proves they are dumb. Yes, not all are good, and at most one would be optimal, but give me a few million dollars, and I can make more headway.
You can't take a recent grad willing to work for beer and hot dogs and have them design the next system.
Hey, Dice! Are you listening to this?
have unique and difficult to find skills (which you should have by that age).
Firstly, if you can learn these magic skills then so can other people - so you won't be unique.
Secondly, it's very difficult to predict what will be hot in a few years time, and even if you could your workplace might not use it.
