Digital and highly accurate road map data represent an indispensable prerequisite for the development and assessment of modern advanced driver assistance and automation systems. They are utilized as input for simulation in acceptance and safety tests, and as complementary knowledge on board the vehicles. For simulation, specific description formats are used, which allow for a very precise modelling of the environment. However, the acquisition of real data and their conversion into simulation formats may quickly become very time-consuming and cost-intensive. To reduce the efforts for surveying routes and converting cadastre data into simulation formats, these Road2Simulation Guidelines have been prepared for a standardized surveying of road and surface data. The guidelines are oriented on the road description format OpenDRIVE and the surface description format OpenCRG.
