The project group ASAM OpenDRIVE V1.8.0 is ready to share its developments with the public. This version includes some important functions from the ASAM OpenDRIVE concept paper, such as junction model, environmental model, road geometry, semantic traffic signs, and dynamic signals.

  • Implementability
    According to your expertise, is the standard in its current form feasible and can it be implemented cost-effectively? Does the standard allow an implementation with state-of-the-art technologies? Is the standard designed to be future-proof.
