In addition to new markets and customers, I am sure a good %% of this figure includes cannibalization from what would have been laptop sales. Many consumers are opting for less costly but highly portable (not to mention ease of use) products like Tablets.
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.
