In this paper we propose a novel approach for identification and monitoring of moving objects within a geometric network modeled by straight line segments. The approach can also be used for supplying the objects with directions or other useful information about the surrounding environment. The moving objects are equipped with direct-access pattern interface devices that provide dynamic environment-oriented information and/or static feature-related information. Within the framework of the proposed model, a number of real-life interrelated tasks are considered and possible applications are discussed.
