Wonder if 12-13 billion buys about the same amount as 10 billion last year, if the newer equipment is more expensive (vendors charging more per unit in anticipation of overall reduced demand, for example).
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.
