>> This might consolidate some of the sensor industry and provide competition to bigger players.
Yes, but it may be marginal competition. The real problem is coming from Asia. As we saw the steel industry go in U.S/Wester Europe. most of these companies will be challenged by globalization. M&A will help but the global competitive market will not disappear.
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.
