Support of OpenSCENARIO and OpenDRIVE

IPG Automotive supports OpenSCENARIO and OpenDRIVE and actively contributes to the further development of standards for simulation in ASAM committees.

The international standardization organization ASAM (Association for Standardization of Automation and Measuring Systems) coordinates the development of technical standards. They are developed by project groups in which experts of the member companies work together. The goal of ASAM is to link all tools of a development process chain to enable continuous data exchange.

OpenSCENARIO is part of the ASAM simulation standards that focus on simulation data for the automotive field. It describes driving maneuvers and dynamic environment situations. Since scenario-based testing has already been the main approach of simulation with CarMaker for many years, an interface was created to enable the conversion of OpenSCENARIO data in CarMaker. Hence, both versions, 1.x as well as 2.x, of the standard OpenSCENARIO are supported.

The standard OpenDRIVE defines a data model for the highly precise, logical description of road networks. It is used for the functional validation of driving situations and maneuvers and is applied in vehicle as well as traffic simulation. As part of the ASAM committees, IPG Automotive has actively participated in the development of OpenDRIVE and has been providing support for utilization in combination with CarMaker since 2019.

Do you have questions about the conversion of OpenSCENARIO data in CarMaker? Our experts from the Product Management team for simulation software are here to help. Contact: jannik.mueller(at)ipg-automotive.com
