Programmatic Scene and Scenario Management

Programmatically open, import, and manage scenes and scenarios by using a roadrunner object

The roadrunner object enables you to manage RoadRunner scenarios from the MATLAB® command line. You can open, save, import, and export scenarios, scenes, and projects. You can also set scenario variables and create simulations for RoadRunner Scenario.

RoadRunner also provides MATLAB functions to convert custom data into the RoadRunner HD Map data model and import your data into RoadRunner. Using these functions, you can create a new map, edit an existing map, and read and write from file. You can also represent lanes, lane boundaries, lane markings, junctions, barriers, and signs in the HD map.
