Parser and converter from OpenDRIVE to lanelets

Project description

OpenDRIVE 2 Lanelet - Converter

This tool is deprecated! Please use our new CommonRoad Scenario Designer!

We provide the code for an OpenDRIVE ( to lanelets ( converter, which has been introduced in our paper: M. Althoff, S. Urban, and M. Koschi, "Automatic Conversion of Road Networks from OpenDRIVE to Lanelets," in Proc. of the IEEE International Conference on Service Operations and Logistics, and Informatics, 2018. Additionally, we provide a converter from CommonRoad lanelets to OSM lanelets and vice versa.

Converting files using the command line

Converting a file from OpenDRIVE to CommonRoad with the command line:

opendrive2lanelet-convert input_file.xodr -o output_file.xml

Converting a file from OSM lanelets to CommonRoad lanelets with the command line (for description of input parameters see documentation):

osm-convert inputfile.xml --reverse -o outputfile.osm --adjencies --proj "+proj=etmerc +lat_0=38 +lon_0=125 +ellps=bessel"

For the conversion of CommonRoad lanelets to OSM lanelets change the input and output file accordingly. Visualizing the results of the conversion to CommonRoad:

opendrive2lanelet-visualize input-file.xml


The documentation is published on the CommonRoad homepage.

To generate the documentation from source, first install the necessary dependencies with pip:

pip install -r docs_requirements.txt

Then you can run

cd docs && make html

for example.

Known Problems

  • When trying to use the under Wayland, the following error occurs:
    This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "wayland" in "".
    Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, xcb.
    Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
    Set the platform to xcb using this command: export QT_QPA_PLATFORM="xcb"
