I don't think RF will have a future in the IoT market as most of the object are connected to the main power line. I think that the future will be a LON device for each thing and a LON to WiFi router/gateaway to connect the devices to the Internet
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.
