Welcome to the World of OpenDRIVE®!

- setting standards since 2006 -

OpenDRIVE® is an open file format for the logical description of road networks. It was developed and is being maintained by a team of simulation professionals with large support from the simulation industry. Its first public appearance was on January 31, 2006.

Why use OpenDRIVE®?

This is one of the key questions asked by potential users of the format. Here are some reasons:

  • OpenDRIVE® is vendor-independent and may be used free of charge and without further obligations
  • OpenDRIVE® contains all key features of real road networks
  • OpenDRIVE® is an established format with a broad international user base
  • OpenDRIVE® is a well managed format with transparent processes for on-going development
  • OpenDRIVE® has been in the market since 2006 and has since incorporated numerous user inputs arising from actual use cases.
  • Please check out this website to discover many more reasons for using OpenDRIVE®. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us directly. Your support of our initiative and your inputs will be very much appreciated in our effort to continuously improving OpenDRIVE®.
