parson revises documentation for ASAM's OpenSCENARIO standard

April 29, 2021

ASAM maintains and develops the open file format OpenSCENARIO, which describes the dynamic content of driving and traffic simulations.

parson has many years of experience in the documentation of technical standards and information architecture. In this project, we extended and standardized the documentation of OpenSCENARIO, adapted it to the ASAM document structure and revised the documentation in terms of language. We were able to draw on experience from other projects with ASAM and the information architecture, terminology, and writing rules defined in them. 

Working with parson for the next development iteration of the ASAM OpenSCENARIO standard is probably one of the best steps ASAM could have taken to increase the quality and usability of the standard. Their superb guidance to the project group on forming the content, bringing it all together and filling in the gaps have led to a much stronger set of documentation than V1.0. I hope to work with the parson team again in the next set of ASAM standardization projects to keep improving the quality of the content we release.

Smart standards with iiRDS

by Uta Lange on January 06, 2022

Patrick Schedlbauer and Ulrike Parson show in their presentation at the tcworld conference 2021 that iiRDS is not limited to certain industries, such as mechanical and plant engineering. Using an example from the automotive industry, they demonstrate how you can use iiRDS to enrich technical standards with metadata and enable the delivery of smart content.  more...

iiRDS for the documentation of technical standards

by Patrick Schedlbauer on September 30, 2021

The iiRDS standard makes documentation smart – so it can be made available on portals, apps and data glasses. Case studies in the field of mechanical engineering are very often mentioned in connection with iiRDS – for example, the scenario of the service technician who uses an end-device to scan an error code on a machine that needs repairing and then receives a snippet of information on the display showing how to fix the problem. This article is about the extensibility of the iiRDS model in the automotive sector. more...
