Object behaviour may simplify prediction scheme (more information and constraint).
Choose different order for different type of object (ball, car, human ...
Motion prediction does not require orientation information to be transmitted.
A plane’s orientation angle is determined solely by its forward velocity
Military flight manoeuvres simulation, The
Phugoid model (Katz, Graham)
Land based objects need only two dimensions specified. (NPSNET)
Update packets only specify two dimensions to handle ground-based
The remote host adjust the object’s height and orientation to ensure that
object always travels smoothly along the ground
Drumstick position prediction(MIT)
Derivative polynomial approximation + ‘emergency’
Emergency message makes the computer disregard its current prediction whenever
a sudden change in the drum stick behaviour was detected
High-level state notification (acting)
Desired level of detail - often do not need to be precise with some aspects.
Do we have to accurately model the flicker of the flames of a burning vehicle
or is it enough to say it is on fire.
The same with smoke. Some VEs need to accurately model smoke, other do not.
Sometimes, remote host don’t need to model the precise
behaviour of the entity.
Dancing, firing, etc.
Remote hosts simply need to receive notification of the high-level state change.
These hosts are free to locally simulate the precise behaviour represented by
