Public Review

ASAM offers its members the opportunity to review and comment on draft versions of standards before release. This way we want to ensure that the standards contain no significant errors and are not missing important requirements.

Public Reviews

The purpose of a "Public Review" is to involve ASAM members who are not part of the project group but work in the respective domain, to obtain their review feedback and to increase the overall quality and acceptance of a standard prior to its release. If you are employee of an ASAM member company, you are eligible to take part in the review process.

ASAM OpenXOntology

Deadline: Nov 29, 2021


The ASAM OpenXOntology is an ASAM standard that defines common definitions, properties, and relations for central concepts of the ASAM OpenX standards, including OpenDRIVE, OpenSCENARIO, OpenODD, OSI, and OpenLABEL.


The OpenX standards describe traffic participants, road networks, driving maneuvers, and test scenarios for driving and traffic simulation, labeling sensor data, and other use cases.The standards share concepts from the domain of road traffic, such as road, lanes, and traffic participants.OpenXOntology provides an ontology-based architecture for these concepts and thus a common definition of the domain model for the OpenX standards. The OpenXOntology covers the following concepts from the domain of road traffic:

          •   Road infrastructure, meaning roads and lanes.

          •   Traffic infrastructure, meaning traffic signs, signals, etc.

          •   Temporal changes in the road and traffic infrastructures, meaning road constructions, diversions, etc.

          •   Dynamic traffic agents, such as cars, pedestrians, and cyclists.

          •   Environment, meaning weather, time of day, etc.

          •   Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication objects.

Review Draft Version


Deadline: Nov 29, 2021


OpenSCENARIO 2.0 is comprised of the specification for a domain specific language and a domain model aimed at the description of dynamic content in driving simulation applications. The primary use of OpenSCENARIO 2.0 is the description and construction of complex scenarios, including maneuvers that involve multiple vehicles and other participants, complex environmental interactions, complex variations of testing parameters. 


OpenSCENARIO 2.0 is used in virtual development, test, and validation of functions for driver assistance, automated driving and autonomous driving.  OpenSCENARIO 2.0 can also be used on test tracks/proving grounds, mixed environment (HIL) and for decoding real word driving data.  The standard may be used in conjunction with ASAM OpenDRIVE and ASAM OpenCRG, which describe detailed information on the road network and surface in driving simulation. 


OpenSCENARIO 2.0 introduces the concept of a Domain Specific Language into a scenario description. This is a language with the properties of a software language. More details are in the documents.
