This effort makes a lot sense and demonstrates alternatives exist to cooper cabling. The fact that Plastic Optical Fiber (POF)is being designed, manufactured and deployed as a small network in vehicles simply demonstrates that POF is a viable medium for high-bandwidth applications. From a car-makers perspective, in-vehicle infotainment systems are going to be a key differentiator along with fuel efficiency, and environmentally friendly cars! POF usage in Home networks is a logical next step!

I'm guessing the Blue-Ray is for infotainment, and I've got to ask my self why you would ever want HD video in a vehicle. The typical screen size and lighting conditions are such that it's near impossible to tell the difference between DVD & HD quality. This looks like an attempt sell something into a market purely because you can, rather than because it offers any tangible benefit. :-)

It is hard for me to understand why we'd want a blue-ray disks in an automobile. I think placing mass storage combined with source compression in a vehicle is where things are heading . This is much better accomplished with hard drive storage (or other if it can compete cost effectively). Wireless communication with home servers and an app that can run on a home computer to talk to the car and transfer whatever information needs updating overnight makes more sense to me.

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.
