Lithium batteries are already so extensively used in modern products that a person would be hard pressed to indict the technology. Of course, a new organization is likely to sensationalize and make sweeping generalizations for the sake of news.
Ref If all of that is beginning to sound like an indictment of lithium-ion batteries, then that's a shame.
And whose fault is this? Couldn't be the Media's errored reporting? Could it? The comment last week from a Japanse media report. "The batteries felt lighter than normal" I guess everyone knwos what a Boeing 787 battery weighs and can make such a judgemnet. All Rubbish.
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.
