@caleb, I would think that the big wave of IoT would first come from small startups, which are the greater risk-takers. Big companies will follow with polished versions, perhaps, but mostly derivatives.
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.
