Rich - I've been thinking about a Kcikstarter project for quite a while, but scalability has always been my big concern. 50 units is one business model. 500 is a totally different model and 5,000 is again, a radically different business model. I've watched companies get into trouble by planning for one business model and ending up with volumes that put them in a differnt one.
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.
