ASAM OpenSCENARIO is an open file format to describe dynamic contents for driving and traffic simulators that are used to develp complex ADAS and highly automated driving systems. A group of industry experts has started the development of OpenSCENARIO® in 2014. In October 2018, OpenSCENARIO was transferred to ASAM to be futher developed in a professional standardization organization.

The primary use of OpenSCENARIO is currently for complex, synchronized maneuver descriptions that involve multiple cars. Under the auspices of ASAM, the standard shall be significantly extended to cover further dynamic content of the simulators, such as driver behavior, traffic, weather, environmental events and more. 

A proposal workshop is scheduled for January 17 - 18, 2019 to determine content and project plan of:

  • a transfer project, which shall clarify and formally document the content of the current version of the OpenSCENARIO schemata.
  • a concept project, which shall determine the further development of the standard for existing or new features.
  • a proposed implementation project to develop supplementary tools that support the application of OpenSCENARIO in practice.

Industry experts, which either develop simulators or regularly use them, are cordially invited to take parte and influence the scope and content of the upcoming standard development projects for ASAM OpenSCENARIO.

Next Step:

In a next step, the current version of the standard will be adopted to formal ASAM standards and distributed free of charge via the ASAM website. Participating in the futher development of the standard requires ASAM membership.
