I'm a student working on 'smart' gateway for wireless sensor networks
(WSN) with an idea of XMPP as a messaging/event distribution system.
It would be probably build around XEP-0060: Publish-Subscribe and/or
XEP-0163: Personal Eventing Protocol with clients registering on
particular events (e.g. motion detection, new temperature measurement,
etc.) which would be gathered in a tree of collection and leaf nodes.
Multiple resources (gateways) of single user (representing particular
WSN) would coexist and publish events and in this way client would
receive events from whole network independently of which gateway
generated it. If You have any comments regarding feasibility or like
the idea and would like to suggest it for GSoC and pose as a mentor
please let me know. If the idea is viable it could be another nice
usage of XMPP and possible candidate for XEP(?). It would be mainly
machine-to-machine communication with gateways being resource
constrained embedded devices.
