This document defines a set of standard application layer interfaces called JAUS Mobility Services. JAUS Services provide the means for software entities in an unmanned system or system of unmanned systems to communicate and coordinate their activities. The Mobility Services represent the platform-independent capabilities commonly found across all domains and types of unmanned systems. At present, 15 services are defined in this document. Some examples include:
Pose Sensors: Determine the instantaneous position and orientation of a platform in global or local coordinates
Velocity State Sensor: Determines the instantaneous velocity of a platform
Acceleration State Sensor: Determines the instantaneous acceleration of a platform
Primitive Driver: Performs basic mobility for a platform based on force/torque efforts
Vector Drivers: Perform closed loop mobility for straight line travel
Velocity State Driver: Similar to vector drivers, but with additional degrees of freedom
Waypoint Drivers: Perform closed loop mobility to a location specified
Waypoint List Drivers: Performs closed loop mobility using a series of locations
Path Segment Drivers: Performs closed loop mobility along a specified path
Each service is described by a JAUS Service Definition (JSD) which specifies the message set and protocol required for compliance. Each JSD is fully compliant with the JAUS Service Interface Definition Language [JSIDL].
This document, the JAUS Mobility Service Set (AS6009), defines a message-passing interface for services commonly found in mobile unmanned systems. These services represent the platform-independent capabilities common across all platform types. Additional capabilities are specified in the JAUS Core Service Set (AS5710) and are frequently referenced herein.
