Hi All,

Kevin and I have drafted a specification for the service based approach
using WebSockets, as discussed in Issue 81
<https://github.com/w3c/automotive/issues/81>. The draft can be found in
the working group wiki here

The specification builds upon the approach raised by Powell Kinney, using a
single WebSocket to send JSON data structures to the server. The JSON
structure specifies the desired vehicle signal specification (VSS) path, an
action parameter to specify get, set, subscribe or unsubscribe as well as a
number of optional parameters.

This specification allows:

   - Use of the VSS, including wildcards and indexing
   - GET/SET over WebSocket
   - SUBSCRIBE to receive change notifications, allowing settable change
   thresholds and upper/lower bounds
   - SUBSCRIBE to receive notifications at a given time interval.
   - UNSUBSCRIBE via a subscription handle
   - UNSUBSCRIBE from all notifications
   - Security tokens to be passed from the client to the server, such as
   OAuth 2.0

We'll go through this on the call on Tuesday night and look forward to
hearing your thoughts.

Kind regards,
