Implementation support for ASAM OpenSCENARIO V2.0.0

ASAM Implementers Forum

Support for the Implementation and Use of ASAM OpenSCENARIO V2.0.0

ASAM is currently developing ASAM OpenSCENARIO in two parallel versions. The two versions occupy different positions in the application toolchain. V1.x is a low-level and concrete specification format, primarily designed to be read by simulation tools. V2.0 allows those users that create maneuver descriptions and tests to define scenarios at a higher level of abstraction as well as providing alternative expression methods to the current XML format of OpenSCENARIO 1.0.0 via a domain-specific language (DSL).


To support companies in implementing the more complex development branch of V2.0.0, ASAM is hosting an Implementers Forum. The goal is to develop a thorough, shared understanding of the usage and implementation requirements of ASAM OpenSCENARIO. The forum will also provide a feedback loop to the development project to highlight any potential issues that arise. 


The Implementers Forum addresses all companies aiming to implement ASAM OpenSCENARIO in their tooling. ASAM membership is not required to take part. 



  • discuss and compare usage of the format, e.g. using reference scenarios
  • discuss and compare implementations of the standard (e.g. cross-tests)
  • provide a link to ASAM OpenSCENARIO V1.x, allowing for demonstration & testing of migration between V1.x and V2.0


ASAM OpenSCENARIO V2.0.0 Public Release Candidate Discussion

ASAM has now released a Public Release Candidate (PRC) of ASAM OpenSCENARIO V2.0.0. The complexity of this standard, with all the groundbreaking features that are being introduced, means there may be some aspects we overlooked for specific use cases. We want to make sure that the first release of this new version of OpenSCENARIO V2.0.0 is the best it can be, so we decided to give you, the industry, a chance to begin testing and implementing the standard before we move to a full release. 


The Implementers Forum will provide the framework for collaboratively discussing, using and implementing ASAM OpenSCENARIO V2.0.0 based on the PRC. The forum has been running in parallel to the development of the standard and has already been providing valuable feedback to the continued improvement. Now we want to kick things up a notch and fully focus all activity on this forum. The forum has two working groups, one that focuses on using the Domain Specific Language to write scenario descriptions and another that focuses on implementing OpenSCENARIO, be it in existing tools or new ones.


We will be holding a

Kick-off Implementers Forum Discussion:  
ASAM OpenSCENARIO V2.0 Public Release Candidate 

on Jan 17, 2022. This workshop is open to all and free of charge. We will go over the working mode of the forum, the feedback channels as well as answer any other questions you may have!

Kick-off - ASAM OpenSCENARIO V2.0.0 Public Release Candidate Discussion

ASAM OpenSCENARIO V2.0.0 has not yet been 
fully released. The complexity of the standard
and the new features mean that there might be
aspects of use cases that have not been taken
into account. For that reason, we will further
discuss the standard and collect further
feedback within the implementers forum.





ASAM OpenSCENARIO V2.0.0 is developed
in parallel to the ASAM OpenSCENARIO V1.x
branch. V2.0.0 introduces some groundbreaking
features. Both branches, V1.x and V2.0 shall 
merge to one in the future.
