Good move, the world of Open Source has created a new business model that is forcing every one to align. I am very happy that companies are beginning to see the benefits of open source. Mentor sure has a lot to gain, but they need to evaluate the leakage of IP.
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.
