OpenDRIVE® is an open Is a description about how information is encoded and structured and given a specific syntax for storage in a computer file.file format for the logical description of road networks. It is intended for vehicle and traffic Is the process of imitation of the behavior of a modeled real-world system over time.simulation and used for the functional The process of determining that a system performs and meets the needs for identified end users.validation of driving maneuvres. OpenDRIVE® was developed and maintained by a team of Is the process of imitation of the behavior of a modeled real-world system over time.simulation professionals with large support from the Is the process of imitation of the behavior of a modeled real-world system over time.simulation industry.
OpenCRG® defines a Is an abstract model that organizes data and how they relate to one another via formal description elements such as entities, attributes, relations and tables.data model for the detailed description of road surfaces for use in simulators. It is suitable for a broad range of applications including tire and driving simulations. OpenCRG® is to be understood as a complementary A public specification, which has been developed by experts in a defined consensus-driven development process and was released by officials that represent a significant share of the industry for which it is targeted, giving the specification the necessary legitimacy to be called a 'Standard'.standard to OpenDRIVE®.
The core teams around OpenDRIVE® and around OpenCRG® have decided to transfer the standards to ASAM in order to ensure an independent further development and long-lasting maintenance of the standards. To start standardization activities, ASAM has hosted a Kick-off Workshop on Oct 09 - 10, 2018 to identify topics that require further development of the standards.
