10.1 Example description of a scenario

The file for the sample scenario used in this tutorial is named SimpleOvertake.xosc. The file is located in the examples directory.

This scenario is written for a country with right-hand traffic, but can easily be adapted to left-hand traffic.

Vehicle 2 and Vehicle 1 are located on the same lane on SampleDatabase.xodr 58 meters apart, with Vehicle 2 being in front of Vehicle 1. Vehicle 1, having the larger speed, catches up with Vehicle 2 , and needs to change to the left lane. After some time, when it has overtaken Vehicle 2, it moves back to its previous lane, ending in front of Vehicle 2.
