Can you give examples of how virtualization might help in embedded systems? I still do not see a strong case for it. Your example in server farms is not a good embedded system example, it is a typical IT system.
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.
