Sports and medical devices seem so different that they should be tracked in different industries. One is mission critical (life saving), regulated, and the other is a consumer recreational device like an iPod or DiskMan. I'd guess that the really exciting advances will in in monitoring, regulating (automatic insulin pumps), and prosthetic assistance devices (mobility, vision, hearing).
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.
