The ASAM OpenSCENARIO 2.0 project is aimed at taking the concepts specified in the OpenSCENARIO concept document (releasing after Mar 12) and continue and develop the next generation of the OpenSCENARIO : OpenSCENARIO 2.0. A rough estimate is that the development of such a standard can be achieved within a year, aiming at release in Q2 of 2021. standard
Based on the considerations of the concept group, OpenSCENARIO 2.0 is proposed to be founded on the concept of a domain-specific language, that should support all levels of scenario description, from the very abstract to the very concrete in a suitable way.
The OpenSCENARIO 2.0 concepts take proven features and capabilities of OpenSCENARIO 1.0, like its event-based scenario execution model, and place them in a more general and expressive language framework, to serve as the foundation for both incremental improvements and more revolutionary enhancements.
In comparison to OpenSCENARIO 1.0, a more detailed set of actions and attributes for the relevant models shall be defined to allow for a more comprehensive scenario description and to improve exchangeability. This is addressed by the introduction of a domain model. simulation
Beyond such improvements, the proposed domain-specific language supports the creation of more complex scenarios through flexible composition and parametrization of component scenarios in ways that allow realistic, emergent behavior to occur. This is expected to enable massive testing and of new, complex hardware and software systems, and their interaction with the complex environment of driving. verification
The concept group believes that the proposed concepts and direction will enable OpenSCENARIO 2.0 to supply a step-function in its ability to describe full, complex simulations and/or tests, addressing all the required elements, and utilizing existing building blocks (like OpenDRIVE or OpenCRG).
In order to leverage investments in OpenSCENARIO 1.0, a clear migration path and compatibility concept is part of the overall OpenSCENARIO 2.0 concepts.
