I can see it now... "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, the evidence will show that the defentant's cellphone was at the crime scene at the specific time of the murder. Furthermore, the sensor data clearly shows a struggle consistent with repeated blows to the face as found on the victim..."
If each smartphone is unique then its a good and bad news for both consumers and companies. The data uniqueness make companies care less for the T&C agreement because they can anyway identify the uniqueness of the data. I fear that customer privacy is larger stake.
The only consolation might be that the data generated would be large and most of the softwares are not advance enough to discriminate. But more and more companies are investing in ways to encash the data that they have stored in the warehouses.
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
