This is very cool. In face I have done something similar to this for sensor
networks. You will probably find Serverless XMPP
(http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0174.html) and perhaps Zeroconf. Also the
PEP XEP (http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0163.html) might be helpful for
distributing events. There is a SOAP XEP

Finally http://middlewaresensing.wordpress.com/ probably has all the pieces
you need already.
