Glossary

ADAS

Advanced Driving Assistance Systems

AEB

Autonomous Emergency Brake preventive emergency braking in danger (support or independent launch)

Channel

Connects components within an agent (using unique ID)

Component

A module that is part of an agent’s equipment

COG

Center of gravity

Dynamics

Calculation of dynamic parameters, e.g. position of Agent

MinGW

Complete Open Source programming tool set, suitable for the development of native MS-Windows applications.

Model

An abstract representation of a real object which might omit details e.g. ADAS, driving dynamics, pedestrian, environmental conditions. In the PreCASE framework, a model consists of one or more modules as well as channels connecting them.

Module

A dynamic library that is loaded and whose interface functions are called by the framework. Modules contain models or other individual functionality necessary for the simulation. Modules are exchangeable and can be fitted to various purposes ensuring ahigh flexibility of the framework.

MSYS

Collection of GNU utilities (e.g. bash, make, gcc) to allow building of programs which depend on traditionally UNIX tools to be present. It is intended to supplement MinGW.

MSYS2

Independent rewrite of MSYS, based on Cygwin (POSIX compatibility layer) and MinGW-w64.

OD

openDRIVE

openPASS

Open Platform for Assessment of Safety Systems

OSI

A generic interface for the environmental perception of automated driving functions in virtual scenarios.

PreCASE

Framework for the Simulative Evaluation of Active Safety Systems in Vehicles (OpenPASS predecessor).

Scenario

A set of similar traffic situations.

TTC

Time to collision
