About power, in a factory you exchange the problem of a cord with battery management when you go cordless. We have a lot of experience with cordless bar code scanners, it is a very disruptive event when the production line goes down because they can't find a charged battery for the scanner in the faciility (don't laugh, it is a true story!).
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.
