Idea of openPASS

Have a look into the presentation of openPASS at EclipseCON 2021

Open Platform for Assessment of Safety Systems. Harmonized and flexible platform for scenario-based traffic simulation of advanced driver asistance systems and automated driving systems. Traffic simulation, stochastic variation, modularity and flexibility, reproducibility through determinism and standardized interfaces.
  • The rise of advanced driver assistance systems and automated driving systems leads to the need of virtual simulation to assess these systems and their effects.

  • Main agreed target objective is to become a broadly accepted effectiveness assessment platform for advanced driver assistance systems and automated driving systems.

Use Cases

1. PCM Simulations: "Crash re-simulations"

  • PCM of GIDAS: PreCrash Matrix from the database of the German In-Depth Accident Study.
  • Re-simulate real crashes from the past, but with cars having ADAS or AD functions and assess if the tested technology would have improved the safety.

2. (Traffic-)scenario based simulations

  • This is the most common use-case for openPASS.
  • Enables simulation of whole traffic scenarios. That includes stochastic variation of those scenarios, intervention through detection of events and triggered actions and much more.
  • To get a better understanding about how these simulations are performed, please look at the scenario-based simulation tutorial.
