The OpenCRG® initiative was launched in October 2008. Its objective is the provision of a series of open file formats and open source tools for the detailed description, creation and evaluation of road surfaces. It is suitable for a broad range of applications including e.g. tyre and driving simulations.
This website is the main portal for information about OpenCRG®. It will make available the latest news concerning the data format, free and commercial tool-sets, test data etc.
OpenCRG® is to be understood as a complementary project to OpenDRIVE®. Whereas the latter offers a macroscopic description of road networks, OpenCRG® will provide everything necessary for the microscopic view of road surfaces.
