Description of road networks for driving and traffic simulation. Specification of driving maneuvers and test scenarios.

Domain Overview: Simulation



New Standard Initiatives for the domain simulation


ASAM considers the development of a standard to enable standardized ODD (Operational Design Domain) description e.g. the conditions in which automated vehicles of level 3 and 4 are to operate in. The outcome of such an ASAM project could be a format description capable of adapting the already existing approaches from e.g. BSI or ISO. The outcome is expected to be aligned with the other OpenX activities in the ASAM simulation domain.


Ideation Phase: The scope of the project is still to be defined. An ideation workshop will take place on Apr 23, 2020 (Register)

The Open Simulation Interface (OSI) is a generic interface that allows users to connect any sensor with a standardized interface to any automated driving function or driving simulator tool. Join this workshop to bring in your ideas and requirements on how to further develop ASAM OSI. This new standard will be further developed with agile, open source software development methods.


Ideation Phase: The project is still in its proposal phase. Participation is still possible

ASAM OpenOntology

This project aims to initiate the development of an ASAM Open Ontology that shall provide a foundation of common definitions, properties, and relations for central concepts of the ASAM OpenX standards, including OpenDRIVE, OpenSCENARIO, OpenLABEL and others.


Proposal Phase: The proposal workshop will take place on Apr 24, 2020. Register

OpenLABEL aims to introduce a standardized set of labels for objects of interest and for driving scenarios. In parallel it will define a generic labeling format applicable to data not specific to the two aforementioned use cases.


Project Phase: A concept project has been set up and is currently running. It is supposed to end in Q3 2020.
