Finding safe motions in complex traffic situation is one of the major challenges in autonomous driving. Typically, one has to develop a large software framework before one can start developing new motion planning techniques—such a framework typically includes software for representing a road network, reasoning on such a network, collision checking, simulating vehicle dynamics, and visualizing results, to name only a few aspects. All this is taken care of by our CommonRoad software framework available from

To further facilitate the use of CommonRoad, we have developed new helper functions that are tailored for the search algorithms. A special feature of the CommonRoad website is that you can upload your solutions and see how well you perform to other groups.
