In 1980 I was a Stirling engine designer for Stirling Power Systems in Ann Arbor Mi. We didn't have solar power then, it would have helped to justify the capital investment to buy such a system. We were there to do the same thing, use Detroit manufacturing knowhow to lower the cost. Still makes sense.
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.
