ASAM OpenSCENARIO is part of the ASAM simulation standards that focus on simulation data for the automotive environment. The standard can be used together with road network descriptions that are defined according to the standard ASAM OpenDRIVE and the description of the road surface described by ASAM OpenCRG. The three standards complement each other. Together they define the content that is required to describe the simulated world.

When combined, all three standards provide a scenario-based description of traffic simulation that contains both static and dynamic content. Other ASAM standards referenced here are aimed at supplying operational design domain (ODD) information (ASAM OpenODD concept), or scenario labeling (ASAM OpenLABEL).

In future revisions, the domain model will be synchronized with ASAM OpenXOntology.

Members of the OpenX-family of standards and their current version:

  • ASAM OpenCRG 1.2.0 [1]

  • ASAM OpenDRIVE 1.7.0 [2]

  • ASAM OpenLABEL 1.0.0 [3]

  • ASAM OpenODD concept paper [4]

  • ASAM OpenSCENARIO 1.1.0 [5]

  • ASAM OpenXOntology concept paper [6]

ASAM OpenSCENARIO 2.0.0 is designed to support a set of standards aimed at scenario-based approaches and methodologies for the verification of Automated Driving Systems (ADS).

Among them are:

  • ISO 34502 (in development)
    "Scenario based safety evaluation framework for ADS"

  • ISO 21448 [7]

ASAM OpenSCENARIO is designed to be ready to support ODD definitions based on:

  • BSI PAS 1883 [8]

  • ISO 34503 (in development)

  • SAE J3259 (in development)

The standard is compatible with:

  • ISO 8601 [9]

  • ISO 8855 [10]

  • SAE J3016 (2021) [11]
