On-trip planner (p:ontrip-planner)


The On-trip planner resource enables the client to create Trip in progress (p:trip-in-progress) resources.

This can be used to retrieve updates about the journey which the end-user is currently partaking in. Posting to On-trip planner (p:ontrip-planner) resource will provide the Client with a Trip in progress (p:trip-in-progress), which contains information about the trip that will be taken shortly. This means that the post to On-trip planner (p:ontrip-planner) should take place only shortly before the actual trip will be taken.
