Concrete Scenarios from the highD Dataset According to the ALKS Regulation UNECE R157 in OpenX

In which scenarios do we need to test automated driving systems?

The UNECE R157 ALKS Regulation is providing a list of scenarios, which need to be tested for the introduction of Level 3 Automated Lane Keeping Systems. The Regulation, however, is missing the required parameterization necessary for test case generation. To overcome this, we incorporate the exposure and consider realistic traffic behavior by extracting concrete scenarios according to Regulation’s scenario definition from our established naturalistic highway dataset highD. We extracted over 340 concrete scenarios within the ODD of ALKS and are making them available for free in OpenScenario calling it the ConScenD dataset. You can easily try out our scenarios using the open source simulation tools CARLA and esmini.

You can request the dataset for free below.
