I agree that this is a common request. I created a demo for it with 
RIOT. See the"Data collection app" link below for the RIOT side of the 
demo code. The demo includes bootstrapping code, but see 
"_run_sensor_loop" for the loop you're interested in. See pg 4-5 in 
Slides for a photo and conceptual drawings.

It would be great to somehow use your IoT Designer to generate the code! 
RIOT's SAUL API removes a lot of the board/sensor level complexity.
