HORN - Hank and OpenDRIVE Road Networks : An editor for creating HANK scenarios while working with OpenDRIVE

University essay from Linköpings universitet/Interaktiva och kognitiva systemLinköpings universitet/Tekniska högskolan

Abstract: HORN is a solution to the problem of how to implement scenarios in a more efficient way than was previously possible allowing researchers who wish to create scenarios for HANK the ability to quicker implement larger scenarios than was previously possible. OpenDRIVE is an open standard for road networks that is believed to be the way forward and Horn is an attempt at unifying OpenDRIVE scenarios with HANK - the driving simulator currently in use at Link\"{o}pings Universitet, thus futureproofing all work done to implement scenarios. Before HORN HANK scenarios were laboriously constructed with a really bad program or by hand and HORN tries to make the process far less painful. This thesis describes how to work with the Road Network Editor program HORN ("Hank and OpenDRIVE Road Networks") that was developed for working with HANK's scenarios as well as my experience implementing it and some of the fascinating rules for how to draw some exotic two dimensional geometries I found out about as I worked on HORN.
