1      Definition

A Data Type representing an Object’s position, velocity, and acceleration.

2      Functional Requirements

  • The Position of an Object is that of a representative point in the Object.
  • Cartesian and Polar Coordinate Systems are supported.
  • The following media used types are supported: Audio; Visual; Audio-Visual; Haptic; Smell; RADAR; LiDAR; Ultrasound.
  • Error is the estimated absolute value of the measure spatial and angular values of each of CartPosition, SpherPosition, CartVelocity, SpherVelocity, CartAccel, SpherAccel.
  • Measurement of Error is assumed to be the same for the three components of each value set.

4      Semantics

Table 1 provides the semantics of Position. It should be noted that each of Position, Velocity, and Acceleration can be expressed either in Cartesian (X,Y,Z) or Spherical (r,φ,θ) Coordinates.
