Alignment Activity - Dynamic Signals
Kick-off: Tuesday, Oct 04, 2022 | 13:00 - 15:00 CEST
As part of our continued efforts to improve the alignment of our standards with one another we are initiating a new series of activities. The aim is to pursue harmonization of specific pain points across multiple standards. These will be short and focused activities that run in parallel to our usual standardization projects. The outcome of these activities will be a completed change request to each that is considered. These change requests should be integrated into the next release of each respective Standard. Standard
For the first activity in this series the scope is the semantics of dynamic traffic signals in the on-road driving domain. These are dynamic signs, often overhead on a motorway, that can be changed semantically between different signs. Describing these using ASAM standards is currently not possible or consistent across them.
We are looking for experts who have already worked on our standards and who are experienced with dynamic signals (e.g. traffic lights) to participate in this activity in order to add harmonized support for dynamic signs to the standards they represent. At a minimum the activity aims to cover the following:
- ASAM OpenDRIVE - Add support for the definition of a dynamic sign above the motorway
- ASAM OpenSCENARIO - Add support for referencing and changing the semantics of the dynamic sign. Version 1.2.0 will likely need a new action. Version 2.0.0 will need an extension to the domain model.
- ASAM OSI - Add message support for the transmission of the semantics that the sign currently has
Additional experts and project participants of other ASAM standards e.g. ASAM OpenXOntology, ASAM OpenLABEL or ASAM OpenODD are invited to take part if they feel this would have an impact on the respective standards.
The activity is expected to last 3 - 4 months, targeting a start in mid-October. We expect a time commitment of 2 hours / week to be necessary per participant.
If you have expertise in any of the standards named and would like to contribute to adding harmonized support for dynamic signals then sign up with us!
