Hi there,
so I see that the w3c have created a sensor network activity...
The mission of the Semantic Sensor Network Incubator Group, part of  
the Incubator Activity, is to begin the formal process of producing  
ontologies that define the capabilities of sensors and sensor  
networks, and to develop semantic annotations of a key language used  
by services based sensor networks.

Which go me to thinking - is a sensor with a 'hard' interface  
(buttons and lights) a user agent? And is the hardware / software  
controlling such a network a user agent?
