The market for connected-home devices has been growing rapidly. But thus far, it’s been DIY’ers who have been driving demand. If the market is going to surpass the billion-unit-a-year mark as forecasted, the done-for-you types will have to join in. Sears thinks it’s figured out how to do just that.
When it comes to collecting personal data, there’s a fine line between what’s OK and what’s not.
I wrote about this top-of-mind issue in my latest USA TODAY column. I’ll be moderating a panel at Sensors Expo next week in Long Beach, Calif., to discuss what we can now with all the data being collected. And we’ll discuss how not to cross the line. The panel is part of Sensor Expos’ conference portion, which is being hosted by the MEMS Industry Group.
