Indeed, Mike, both of those videos show some serious ruggedness from Motorola.... but it's way easier to make a rugged radio walkie talkie than it is a slim and delicate smartphone! I don't see too many people walking around with radios, unless they're on a construction site!
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.
