The version 2.4.1 of RoadXML is now available. This version brings a few evolutions to the 2.4.0 version:

  • Support for dual markings (Like in US with double continuous lines)
  • New optionnal RapidXML (fast) parser
  • Subnetwork contours for terrain generation and tiles
  • Separate physical and rolling surfaces
  • Terrain generator material informations

The version 2.4 of RoadXML is now available. This version brings a few evolutions to the 2.3 version:

- New elements to manage geographical localisation

- New elements to Trajectories

- Switch to Xerces 3.1

- Switch to dynamicly linked library for stk and RoadXML

"The open source wins the driving simulation

Supported by the editor of driving simulation software OKTAL , the open format RoadXML strengthens its functioning organization. If the driving simulation allows accelerating the conception and validation of future vehicles while decreasing the costs, it remains expensive and slow in its implementation. A recent announcement could participate in the standardization of this tool.

It concerns RoadXML, the new data format of road network logical description, which perpetuates by the election of a steering committee. Now this open format should facilitate the interoperability between driving simulators and participate in the development of a unique interface between these simulators and the applications of engineering and traffic. Its ambition is also to improve the contents of road network description formats to take up the challenges of mobility, sustainable development and training performance. The steering committee of RoadXML consists of industrial and academic representatives, as well as the French editor Oktal, the European leader of simulation software that is at the origin of this initiative."

The version 2.3 of RoadXML is now available. This version brings a few evolutions to the 2.2 version:

  • a new ProxyFile element gives the possibility to store a complete SubNetwork in a external file.
  • the "paved express" type is added to the Lane's types.
  • Array of objects are stored in specifically named Elements.
  • A SubNetwork is now completly independant from its parent Network and contains its Profile, Ground and Marking arrays.
  • All the road specific elements of a SubNetwork are stored in a RoadNetwork element.
  • a "endHeading" attribute is added to the Polyline definition.
  • some errors in the schema have been corrected.

Some new RoadXML samples are provided in the Download section.

Feel free to use them to discover the RoadXML format, and to integrate it into your driving simulation application
