My observation of lithium batteries is that a signficant portion of their wear out comes even without cycling. In other words, they have a independant time factor of degradation in addition to that associated with harsh use conditions.
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.
