A vehicle can be equipped with an SSM Device which logs the conflicts of the vehicle and other traffic participants (currently only vehicles) and corresponding safety surrogate measures.
- Equipping vehicles
To attach an SSM device to a vehicle, the standard device-equipment procedures can be applied using
For instance, a single vehicle can be equipped (with a device parametrized by default values) as in the following example
<routes> ... <vehicle id="v0" route="route0" depart="0"> <param key="has.ssm.device" value="true"/> </vehicle> .... </routes>
The SSM device generates an output file (one for each vehicle named
ssm_<vehicleID>.xml per default, but several vehicles may write to the same file). The top level elements of the generated file are
<conflict begin="<log-begin-time>" end="<log-end-time>" ego="<equipped-vehicleID>" foe="<opponent-vehicleID>"> ... </conflict>.
The SSM device supports output-customization by a range of parameters.
