My last post described some RSS monitoring I hacked together, including some questions on how to develop a usable system going forward. I have been following reports from IETF90 with an eye toward these questions, and it sounds like this topic was on the minds of participants as well. The word I hear is that concensus is building around a CoAP-ified RESTCONF.
I just added a web page with some plans for implementation of a demonstration system built around RESTCONF, Kaji/Shinken, OpenWSN, and OpenMotes. This work should be immensely fun and interesting, and also help to materialize the goal of interoperable sensor networking. I look forward to the possibility of participating in the standardization around this work.
