This is an interesting use of Wi-Fi. I feel a shorter range Wi-Fi would be better off targeting wireless hard disks (remember wireless USB?) and would be on overkill for mouse and keyboard. But they do mention integrated audio and video applications. I would be interested in knowing use cases where high bandwidth is required.
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.
