the question about mandatory GPS in mobile phones is that most people turn off features to extend battery life. I turn off GPS, WiFi and BlueTooth. That seems to defeat the GPS locating feature unless it can be remotely enabled?
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.
