One microcosm that should be easy to analyze is a car. With one driver and 50 to 100 microprocessors (which are receiving data), the sensors far outnumber the human driver. I do hope that we can improve upon the efficiency, architecture, and integration of future home control systems. Otherwise we're doomed to spend our days debugging and resetting scores of computers with little time to do anything useful.
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.
