1      Definition

A Data Type representing an Object’s Position, Orientation and their 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 measured as a percentage of the value of each of CartPosition, SpherPosition, Orientation, CartVelocity, SpherVelocity, OrientVelocity, CartAccel, SpherAccel, OrientAccel.
  • Error is assumed to be the same for the three components of each value set.

4      Semantics

Table 14 provides the semantics of the components of the Spatial Attitude. The following should be noted:

  1. Each of Position, Velocity, and Acceleration is provided either in Cartesian (X,Y,Z) or Spherical (r,φ,θ) Coordinates.
  2. The Euler angles are indicated by (α,β,γ).
