Sensor with location description (byDescription)

In order to support a wide variety of needs for providing location, orientation, and dynamic state of a physical component or system, there are several means for specifying "where". These include byDescription, byPoint, byLocation, byState, byTrajectory, and byProcess.

The simplest of these is byDescription (see example below). This should only be used when the exact location relative to a geospatial frame or other components is unknown or not important.
