ASAM OpenDRIVE and OGC CityGML - A Transportation Area Concept
Wednesday, Jan 26, 2022 | 14:00 - 17:00 CET | Online Meeting
ASAM has received a proposal for a combined use of ASAM OpenDRIVE and OGC CityGML to realistically represent real world data at a larger scale. ASAM is holding this proposal workshop to discuss this idea of a transportation area concept.
Simulations are used for the testing and of advanced driver assistance systems and automated driving. The complex systems under test require not only accurate and detailed modeling of the road, but also an increasing amount of information about the environment. Currently, ASAM OpenDRIVE performs the task of road description and has become a useful and well accepted validation in the automotiveom industry. However, ASAM OpenDRIVE does not cover all use cases: standard
- Simulation settings and road settings become more and more complex.
- More real-world data is introduced.
- The databases are linked to various other databases for sensor simulation.
OGC CityGML describes the environment of a city and has also turned into a well used in the field of city modeling. Key strengths of this standard are highly accurate geo-referenced, geometric and topological information as well as semantic capabilities. Compared to OpenDRIVE, CityGML follows a completely different geometric modelling approach based on discrete areas. As general exchange standard for 3D city models, CityGML does not cover all requirements for a specific application, which results in some drawbacks regarding the automotive domain: standard
- City management applications often require a fragmented view of the traffic area, which does not match a simulation view.
- Semantic concepts differ with respect to their approach on segmenting the street space in individual objects as well as modelling the road (e.g. linear referencing, parametric geometries)
- Only including OpenDRIVE into CityGML does not solve the OpenDRIVE issues.
The aim of this concept project is to reconsider the approach to street modeling by using the domain concept of the ASAM OpenDRIVE concept project to address the challenges of realistically representing real world data at a larger scale. The project will propose how to combine the accurate description of large real-world road networks, road infrastructure and equipment together with their complex environment. The concept project will bring together expertise from the automotive and urban modeling domains to propose a simple and modular solution that is easy to use and extensible by other relevant stakeholders (e.g., transportation or energy management).
The workshop particularly addresses users that have the need of combining highly precise road description as well as detailed (urban) environment modeling. The idea is to make data available cross-domain: from users to road operation and city planning to driver assistance and automated driving. simulation
