Yes. 6LoWPAN is IPv6 over a Low power Wireless Personal Area Network, typically based on the IEEE 802.15.4 standard. This is essentially what IPSO promotes. Others like Zigbee use similar physical layers but typically use their own higher layer protocols not IP. Some IPSO folks may still use IPv4 but the trend is clearly to IPv6.
