fyi, Clarke posted this to the public-sensorweb  list [1] ; I think this should be of interest to DAP members if you haven't seen it

> Just a couple of weeks ago, UPnP Forum gave final approval status to the
> SensorManagement device control protocol (DCP). This is a general purpose
> specification that works within the Universal Plug-n-Play (UPnP)

> architecture and allows a large class of devices to be modeled by a
> collection of sensors and actuators. For example, one sample application
> models a refrigerator by freezer temperature, grocery temperature,
> vegetable temperature, door-open alarm, etc. A device model can be simply
> built with XML syntax in a matter of minutes. But the news is even better.
> This is available right now for free to anyone interested in building
> applications that use UPnP. UPnP has been around for a dozen years and is
> currently deployed in over a billion devices. There are numerous stacks,
> tools and development kits (many of them free) and they are available on
> most every operating system.
> 
> Full disclosure: I am the chair of the UPnP technical committee. However,
> since this is a system that any of you can use for free to develop your
> sensor-based solutions, I don't feel guilty about promoting it. You can
> learn about UPnP technology at upnp.org. It is an open standards
> development organization. You download the specifications for free. Basic
> membership is also free.
> 
> If the group is interested in a more structured presentation of the
> SensorManagement DCP, I could arrange a web-based presentation.
