Available options
There are actually a lot options open to companies in order to make IoT or sensors work in general. The obvious answer would be current LTE or 3g connectivity, although they seem very prohibitive. One can use existing lines of electricity to provide Internet. Many startups are also looking for using other technologies that will be as reliable as wired internet without the cost of wireless internet that is available today.

Re: All the sensor has to do
@Rich, great example. Maybe, the train could also be programed to off-load data into a datacenter once it has reached a train station. This mobile internet and fog computing environment has a lot of interesting outcomes that could be created and it changes the view of a static IoT to one that is dynamic.

Re: All the sensor has to do
What IoT is exactly is constantly changes. The device atmosphere is continually developing, and I don't think we've seen smart devices yet that will be all-ecompassing in the way that they collect data.

Many of these sensors do only one thing, while I believe a Swiss Army-type device may be a true disruptive piece of hardware.
