Following the vision of an Internet of Things (IoT) real world objects are integrated into the Internet to provide data as sensors and to manipulate the real world as actors. While current IoT approaches focus on the integration of things based on service technologies, scenarios in domains like smart cities, automotive or crisis management require service platforms involving real world objects, backend-systems and mobile devices. In this paper we introduce a service platform based on the

We argue for XMPP as protocol for unified, real-time communication and introduce the major concepts of our platform. Based on two case studies we demonstrate real-time capabilities of XMPP for remote robot control and service development in the e-mobility domain.
