I think having wireless connectivity built in to all phones - especially the iPhone - will be essential in determining a standard. As it is, the consumer needs to buy more devices and wires to wirelessly charge. Once the early adopters buy into a multimode solution and, eventually, resonant technology, the rest will follow.
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.
