Carlo van Driesten

During his time at BMW, Carlo has authored the Open Simulation Interface (OSI) - an interface for the integration of environment perceiving sensor models. He has also established the “OpenX” at ASAM e.V. as the basis for all standardized interfaces and data formats for virtual test and validation of autonomous driving and created the “ENVITED Ecosystem” at the Automotive Solution Center for Simulation e.V. as the first Distributed Market Place for Simulation Data & Models for L4+ Autonomous Vehicles using novel blockchain technology as an enabler. Prior to BMW, Carlo worked in software development for Rohde and Schwarz, and graduated from TU München with an M.Sc in electrical engineering and information technology.


Enabling Virtual Test & Validation – Self-Sovereign Identity via OIDC to enable Decentralized Open Data Markets

The goal of a virtually enhanced homologation process through the usage of driving simulators relies on the quality of the data used as input for the simulation. If HD Maps, driver models, scenarios, or sensor models, the integration of such elements in various systems throughout deep supply chains demand a common understanding brought by standards like e.g., OpenDRIVE from the ASAM e.V. OpenX. BMW explores the possibility to create an open and decentralized data ecosystem (ODDE) to increase the availability of standardized simulation data. The European research family GaiaX with the help of DLT technologies, self-sovereign identities and zero-knowledge proofs for selective privacy and scaling in open networks serve here as the technological baseline. We show the current state of the ODDE realized in the ENVITED (ENvironment for VIrtual TEst Drive) research cluster at the Automotive Solution Center for Simulation e.V.
