My name is Peter Waher, and I work as CTO for Clayster AB. Clayster provides a platform for services hosted in the cloud, Semantic Web, the grid or/and sensor networks. My interest in XMPP stems from the fact that we're using it for M2M communications, peer-to-peer communications in IP-TV applications and as a pluggable transport layer in IP-based sensor networks (Internet of Things).

Some links contining information about what we do:


XMPP Activity

I've spent the last year mainly rallying support for the use of XMPP in sensor networks and semantic web applications in Europe and South America. I'm partaking in several research projects whose aim it is to establish methods to interchange sensor data using these technologies, as well as held lectures explaining the benefits of the use of XMPP and Semantic Web technologies in sensor networks. I've been searching for partners who, together with me, want to publish XEP's in these areas. Being a member of the XSF has been a great way to get into contact with researchers in these fields.

Purpose for re-applying

The main purpose for reapplying for membership is to be able to propose XMPP extensions. Our main interest is to expand xmpp to be used mainly within the following two areas:

  • Sensor networks. This includes among others:
    • Sensor detection, integrated with existing XMPP standards
    • Sensor meta data, capabilities
    • Starting sensor readouts, and asynchronous metering data reporting.
    • Sensor configuratons (i.e. controlling devices for home automation)
    • Interoperability between sensor and meter manufacturers, by providing an accepted open framework for sensor communications.
  • Semantic Web (web 3.0). This includes:
    • Semantic Service discovery, integrated with existing XMPP standards.
    • Publishing SPARQL endpoints over XMPP
    • Extending SPARQL queries over social/sensor networks.
    • Transporting semantic information (RDF/XML, Turtle, SPARQL Results/XML, etc.) over XMPP
  • Decentralized Social Networking.
