In order to achieve interoperability with other systems, it is essential that standard methods of accessing data and representing data are used.
The SPSD takes a standards based approach to scenario data and the API for accessing it - use of these standards is referred to in more detail elsewhere in the knowledgebase and links to the standards used can be found below.
Scenarios definitions in SPSD are represented using the Scenario Definition Language (SDL) developed by WMG as a standard way of defining scenarios.
Tagging provides for an efficient method of cataloging scenarios which is independent of the scenario definition language used.
Scenarios in SPSD are tagged using tags from the ASAM OpenLabel standard which includes the BSI PAS 1883 Operation Design Domain (ODD) taxonomy. The use of a standard tagging ontology provides compatibility across systems.
The full ontology used for tagging scenarios in Safety Pool can be downloaded from here.
Scenario File Format
SPSD provides compatibility in exchanging scenarios with other systems through the use of the ASAM OpenLabel file format. This format is used when downloading scenarios from the database either manually or via the API.
