8th. OpenDRIVE® and 1st. OpenSCENARIO User Meeting

Nov. 13, 2015
The Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart e.V. and VIRES Simulationstechnologie GmbH had issued an invitation to Stuttgart for the 8th OpenDRIVE® and 1st OpenSCENARIO User Meeting.

This event was divided into two parts: in the morning the current developments of OpenDRIVE® and its future challenges were discussed, whilst in the afternoon the standardization measure OpenSCENARIO was presented and specified.

Not only automotive groups, but also media giants are investing billions in a vision that will change the mobility and lives of the world population: highly automated driving. Although this vision appears to be within reach today, there are considerable technological and legal barriers, which have to be overcome. New and, above all, virtual development and test environments are needed to bring the enormous complexity of the interacting system components and the high integration efforts for OEMs and suppliers alike, in line with the requirements for safety, efficiency, performance, comfort, user friendliness and customer acceptance. This will lead to new development and validation tasks in the future.

This user meeting, designed to tackle the new challenges, was organized by the asc(s together with the software company VIRES, a key partner in the standardization projects OpenDRIVE® and OpenSCENARIO. The international audience included representatives of e.g. Daimler, Opel, Porsche, BMW, Audi, Toyota and Valeo, as well as those of other reputable suppliers, service providers and scientific institutions.
