       Dynamic Extensions to the Presence Information Data Format
                       Location Object (PIDF-LO)

Abstract

   The Geopriv Location Object introduced by the Presence Information
   Data Format - Location Object (PIDF-LO), RFC 4119, defines a basic
   XML format for carrying geographical information of a presentity.
   This document defines PIDF-LO extensions to convey information about
   moving objects.  Elements are defined that enable expression of
   spatial orientation, speed, and heading of the presentity.

1.  Introduction

   The Presence Information Data Format - Location Object (PIDF-LO) (see
   RFC 4119 [RFC4119]) provides geographical location of a presentity.
   This corresponds to a physical location at a given instance of time.
   RFC 5491 [RFC5491] extends PIDF-LO and provides additional guidelines
   to implementers.

   This document extends PIDF-LO to convey spatial orientation, speed,
   and heading of a presentity.  The addition of rate-of-change
   information to the PIDF-LO enables a range of use cases.  These use
   cases either use dynamic information directly or use that information

   for smoother tracking of a position over time.  For example, an
   application that continuously tracks a presentity could use velocity
   information to extrapolate positions in between times that location
   information is measured.  A shipping company could directly use speed
   to monitor delivery truck speed to ensure speed limits are observed.
