Leviton, I would look at sleep modes although the important thing is how much work needs to be done! You want to be able to put the mcu in low power mode and keep it there as long as possible. We'll talk more about mcu selection tomorrow.
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.
