@lyrad - what a complex question! If you are concerned about scheduling as part of the design phase, many companies are now deploying virtual prototypes where they can assess their communications needs and measure expected response times. I not sure there is an easy way to do it.
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.
