Introduction

OpenDS is a free, open-source driving simulator for research and development in the automotive industry as well as scientific studies. The core part of OpenDS is funded by the European Commission (7th Framework Programme) in the project GetHomeSafe. The open-source project receives additional funding by EIT ICT Labs. Particularly, we apply the so called "Open-Source Booster", a funding instrument dedicated to open-source software.

The main contributor to the free software is the Automotive Group at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI). For providing the community with a professional line, we founded the spin-off company white_c, which offers support and extensions. Additionally, white_c conducts experiments on behalf of its customers in its own driving simulation lab on the Campus of Saarland University.
