The purpose of the concept project is to evaluate and to conceptually specify feature requests for the further development of ASAM OpenSCENARIO. The expert community has identified and prioritized twelve features for which this project shall develop concepts for standardization. In case that the concept development requires increased resources and more time, then this project might spawn additional concept projects by creating the required project proposals.
The project's main goal is to transfer the OpenCRG public specification and source code to ASAM, to clarify, enhance and add content, and to release the specification together with the source code as an ASAM public standard.
OpenDRIVE files have to fulfill various conditions to be usable in simulators: They must comply to the syntax and structure of the standard file format. More importantly, usable road network descriptions must follow logical and plausibility rules, which are beyond what has been defined in the standard. To check OpenDRIVE files against such rules and ensure their usability for simulation
a "checker tools" shall be developed, which checks the files against specific rules and report issues to the user, and a "reference visualization tools", which render the road network in a simple way and allow users to visually inspect the road network for any issues.
This project shall standardize future diagnostics systems for in-vehicle high performance computers (HPC). Those devices are primarily used as controllers for ADAS, connected vehicle and autonomous driving functions. It is intended to define a standardized service API for HPC diagnostics, which includes new HPC-related and conventional diagnostic use-cases.
