Scenario Generation

Generate scenario from recorded real-world sensor data

In automated driving applications, scenario generation is the process of building virtual scenarios from real-world vehicle data recorded from global positioning system (GPS), inertial measurement unit (IMU), camera, and lidar sensors. Automated Driving Toolbox™ provides functions and tools to automate scenario generation process. You can preprocess sensor data, extract roads, localize actors, and get actor trajectories to create an accurate digital twin of a real-world scenario. Simulate the generated scenario and test your automated driving algorithms against real-world data.

To generate scenarios from recorded sensor data, download the Scenario Builder for Automated Driving Toolbox support package from the Add-On Explorer. For more information on downloading add-ons, see Get and Manage Add-Ons.
