Maybe I'm just cheap, but I recently retired my 17-year-old VW Jetta. Granted it lasted that long because I put fairly limited mileage on it (<100K when I traded it in), but when the repair bills started to mount I knew it was time to dump it.
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.
