I love this idea and project and I’m wondering how to help it flourish!
I see smart farming (CEA) as a huge potential. If to adapt, OS would have to:
- Organise orchestration reliably over (dedicated) os-rpi for os-esps -> gateway module?
- Add custom_sensor mqtt case
- “Dynamic” instantion, setup and use of possible I²C-sensors
I think a “gateway” module for rpi (with GSM and (solar) powermanagement) could work; alternatively a Mesh network? The sensors are just I²C’d in.
What do you think? Is OS just a little tool for one job, or can it stay modular and grow its ecosystem?
