As far as modifying equipment and providing to others, probably not if it was off the shelf equipment, and especially if it had one of those stickers that says warranty voided if sticker is torn, missing, etc.
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.
