This seems to be a very 'Lite' presentation, with no inside information or insights for musician, technician or engineer.
I guess if you are a novice entering the field and needing a crash course (like a salesman or Year 1 student) without troubling your intellect with how stuff works or how it can be used, then this would be a decent overview.
You might learn more from studying a few music instrument catalogs and datasheets.
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
