I've been reading a lot on IoT over the last few weeks and across all the research papers I've seen, there seemed to be two recurring topics.
- The current use cases for IoT (outside of IIoT / Edge Computing) are a bit contrived or would be a hard sell to the cities, malls, stadiums, etc where the IoT solution would be deployed. Additionally, managing the costs and the latency requirements of the implementation would also be difficult.
- There doesn't seem to be a communication standard that encompasses this experience. There's MQTT, Fog Computing, NGSI, etc and a few different flavors, but there isn't a de facto/winning standard.
This is still a new area of interest for me, so I may very well be mistaken ^
I've got a background in web and mobile (iOS) computing and have been playing around with Arduino/Raspberry Pi over the last week and I'm struggling to come up with meaningful use case. I've built an automated irrigation system and WiFi connected LED projects to get my feet wet (just like everyone else on Instructables), but, I'm still at a loss on how to contribute in a more meaningful way.
Any suggestions on how to contribute to the IoT space as in independent contributor? Any intersection between IoT and iOS where I could contribute?
