It is amazing to see how orderly Sony and other companies have been in coping with the earthquake/tsunami aftermath. Sony has such a strong global branding, I'm glad to hear they have resumec production in so many places.
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.
