An engineer returns home from work and sees a note from his wife stuck prominently on the door of the fridge that says: "This isn't working. I've gone back to my mother's."'
The engineer opens the fridge and checks the light. He grabs a beer to make sure it's cold. Eventually, the engineer thinks to himself, "I don't know what she's talking about. The fridge is working just fine."
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
