* openMobility will participate with SUMO and MOSAIC?
 +
* The basic idea after talking to most of you separately is to create a set-up for the platooning application (combines safety, comfort and fuel economy features) while using multiple SW solutions for each part of the system:
 +
** Environment: PreScan(Siemens, with a new CPP interface?) / SUMO (DLR)
 +
** Middleware: Cloe(BOSCH)/ OpenMCX (AVL)/ MOSAIC(Fraunhofer?)
 +
** Vehicle: VSM(AVL)/Amesim(Siemens) etc.
 +
** Controls: Simulink, C++, python etc.
 +
** Cloud set-up : BOSCH; JCIM, Siemens, AVL
 +
** Etc.
 +
* The focus should be on making a RUNNABLE example asap using existing components, each of them exchangeable, as a modularity concept enforcement.

 +
==== Vector: Benedikt Schott / Topics for LibSumo / Conan ====
 +
* next time
 +
 
 +
==== Umbrella Working Group "Automotive" / "InMotion" Initiative ====
 +
* Further discussion led to two the choice between two alternative approaches
 +
** Option a) centralized approach with a top-level working group
 +
*** Requires a lot of initial effort, but simplifies centralized tasks for all interest groups
 +
*** Missing focus?
 +
*** ...
 +
** Option b) decentralized approach with a lightweight initiative
 +
*** Lower effort to setup, all working groups remain the same
 +
*** Missing structure and "portfolio / product management"?
 +
*** ...

 +
==== Umbrella Working Group "Automotive" / "InMotion" ====
 +
* Idea: work towards having an umbrella working group for all automotive & mobility related activities
 +
* Feedback from Eclipse is good, in more details:
 +
** we all want less paperwork
 +
** we can waive the participation agreement when joining an interest group
 +
** we need to have a charter for each interest group for anti-trust reasons
 +
** we would like to start this new umbrella working group in October 2020 - together with the launch of the European Eclipse Foundation (and the resigning of the membership agreements from all Eclipse members)
 +
** Next steps: write a 2-page document about our proposal and discuss with other working groups and partners
 +
* Feedback is greatly appreciated
 +
 
 +
=== Any other Business ===
 +
* Options for SUMO User Conference in October 2020
 +
** pure virtual conference - maybe shorter?
 +
*** Converstation - C. Sommer liked the idea / like a world-coffee style
 +
*** Break out rooms with 5 people in Zoom (proposed by Lara) instead of the 30min Coffee break; Zoom is better with bad internet connections
 +
*** Second Live approach might require a more complicate setup for every user
 +
*** Internal travel restrictions are still not being lifted soon
 +
** mixed virtual and classical conference
 +
** cancelation
 +
** The majority of the attendees propose a pure virtual conference
 +
 
 +
* EclipseCon
 +
** Pure virtual event
 +
** Anybody submitted talks
 +
*** Andy did
 +
** Community day
 +
*** currently nothing on the website
 +
*** Andy will ask about it

** https://github.com/openmobility-wg/userstories/issues/1 would be a low hanging fruit and should be tried first to finish our first user story soon
 +
** #2 could be discussed on the next telco

 +
* Marc Semrau, VW
 +
** VW long time user
 +
* Alexey Preskenis, Modulnye Systemy Uprawlenija (MSU)
 +
** Full stack traffic control systems in Krasnojarsk
 +

 +
* Angelika Wittek, Ralph Müller; Eclipse Foundation
 +
* Zoltan Baksa, Jiao Li (follow up for Rainer Gasper); Bosch

 +
** prediction of traffic effects
 +
** workflow of common building of a city scenario
 +
** tool help on building the map
 +
** contribution in python tooling
 +
** build ADAS systems
 +
** need features for hybrid powertrain
 +
** effects in city wide simulation
 +
** build your own network connection systems
 +
** Quality management
 +
 +
== Discussing participation possibilities ==
 +
* Working together in Research projects is always possible
 +
** Eclipse can do dissemination here
 +
* Example OpenGenesis
 +
** at least 150 person days per member / 40000 Euro
 +
* Example openPASS
 +
** at least 100 person days
 +
* for participation you need to be at least Eclipse Solution member
 +
* Ralph explaining commons
 +
** clear vision
 +
** clear rules
 +
** progress monitoring
 +
** sanctions / conflict resolutions
 +
** self determination
 +
* SUMO as commons
 +
** needed: developers and funding
 +
** list of wanted features
 +
** do not ignore base funding / technical debt
 +
* sharing / common funding is the main goal
 +
* direct orders are still possible
 +
* funding is decided on year by year
 +
** should be enough to do some "real work"
 +
* for research orgs there is little access to free funding
 +
* still in incubation / setup phase
 +
* in the next few weeks decide on structure
 +
* after the incubation year decide how and whether the WG will continue
 +
 +
== Administrative Topics (meeting continues with fewer participants now in German) ==
 +
* Task for this year: Find a sustainable funding model
 +
* Wish: Have a successful Working group also after this one year
 +
* It is one of the tasks of the founding members to find more / new members especially to have more paying members than just Bosch
 +
** Aim: at least 1 (better 4) OEMs in the Working group
 +
** Ongoing talks with Daimler and VW
 +
** Wish: Every member should consider acting as a multiplicator for the WG. Every further member reduces the cost (or increases the benefit) for all.
 +
* TU Braunschweig Institut Fahrzeugtechnik:
 +
** Contribution rather in work hours, not money except for projects / public funding
 +
** The consortium does not only address the industry (and its money). Distribution of the workload is also an aim (this part is of interest to Prof. Friedrich)
 +
* SUMO is getting more sub-microscopic
 +
* Bosch: SUMO should be able to do more than fuel consumption, power train etc.
 +
** Put more emphasis on coupling simulators
 +
 +
== Steering committee elections ==
 +
* Every participant member of the WG is member of the Steering committee and has one vote
 +
* Committers and guests cannot vote directly
 +
* Committers select two representatives which are members of the steering committee without voting rights
 +
** This selection process will be initiated by a mail to sumo-dev to find candidates and a subsequent election in the next two to four weeks.
 +
* Only committers can push to git repositories directly to ensure clean code and adherence to Eclipse regulations
 +
* Election chair of steering committee:
 +
** Single candidate: Robert Hilbrich
 +
** By unanimous vote: Robert is chair
 +
* Proposed change to charter:
 +
* Change duration to the range 13.5.19-12.5.20
 +
** By unanimous vote: charter is changed duration of the chair election period is 13.5.19-12.5.20
 +
 +
== General Organisation ==
 +
* Frequency of Telcos/ Meetings:
 +
** Twice a year face to face (on different locations)
 +
** Proposal: Telcos at least monthly, in the beginning every two weeks, later less often
 +
** Proposal accepted
 +
* Skype for Business Telcos provided by DLR
 +
* There is a wiki which will contain this protocol and will be linked by the web site (and / or vice versa)
 +
* There is a mailing list: https://accounts.eclipse.org/mailing-list/openmobility
 +
* There is a twitter account: https://www.twitter.com/open_mobility
 +
* We need a Feature Tracker
 +
** Jira, GitHub  or Tuleap
 +
** Jira needs a license (maybe a cost free version is available) and has frequent updates with many changes in core functions but Vector already uses it
 +
** All three tools meet the basic needs
 +
** SUMO’s GitHub cannot be the only point of contact because also SUMO independent topics should be tracked
 +
** Proposal: Everyone tests Tuleap (Ralphs favorite because it is open source) and we decide later
 +
* Later we need marketing sldies and our own repository
 +
* More infrastructure needed?
 +
* DLR sends doodle for next telco: https://terminplaner4.dfn.de/next-openmobility-telco only to the mailing list. (dudle von TU Braunschweig)
 +
* There is an archive for the mailing list https://www.eclipse.org/lists/openmobility/
 +
* We already have a web site: https://openmobility.eclipse.org/
 +
** Generated by a static site generator written in Go (https://gohugo.io/)
 +
** Meeting Item and protocol will be on the web site and/or in the wiki
 +
* Code contributions to your own / new Eclipse project
 +
* Ralph mailto:ralph.mueller@eclipse-foundation.org and Angelika mailto:angelika.wittek@eclipse-foundation.org are happy to help out if problems / questions occur also with every other topic

“Real Work”

openADx Demonstrator

  • ... a technology demonstrator for a modular virtual demonstrator environment for a non-trivial ADAS application using the existing software capabilities in different participating organizations, which would help us understand potential interfacing problems better and steer the development activities in the current and on-coming open source projects with OpenADx (and Open Mobility perhaps) in the early phase" (AVL, Josko)
  • openMobility will participate with SUMO and MOSAIC?
  • The basic idea after talking to most of you separately is to create a set-up for the platooning application (combines safety, comfort and fuel economy features) while using multiple SW solutions for each part of the system:
    • Environment: PreScan(Siemens, with a new CPP interface?) / SUMO (DLR)
    • Middleware: Cloe(BOSCH)/ OpenMCX (AVL)/ MOSAIC(Fraunhofer?)
    • Vehicle: VSM(AVL)/Amesim(Siemens) etc.
    • Controls: Simulink, C++, python etc.
    • Cloud set-up : BOSCH; JCIM, Siemens, AVL
    • Etc.
  • The focus should be on making a RUNNABLE example asap using existing components, each of them exchangeable, as a modularity concept enforcement.
  • Doodle for kickoff: [3]

Vector: Benedikt Schott / Topics for LibSumo / Conan

  • next time

Umbrella Working Group "Automotive" / "InMotion" Initiative

  • Further discussion led to two the choice between two alternative approaches
    • Option a) centralized approach with a top-level working group
      • Requires a lot of initial effort, but simplifies centralized tasks for all interest groups
      • Missing focus?
      • ...
    • Option b) decentralized approach with a lightweight initiative
      • Lower effort to setup, all working groups remain the same
      • Missing structure and "portfolio / product management"?
      • ...

    • workflow of common building of a city scenario
    • tool help on building the map
    • contribution in python tooling
    • build ADAS systems
    • need features for hybrid powertrain
    • effects in city wide simulation
    • build your own network connection systems
    • Quality management

Discussing participation possibilities

  • Working together in Research projects is always possible
    • Eclipse can do dissemination here
  • Example OpenGenesis
    • at least 150 person days per member / 40000 Euro
  • Example openPASS
    • at least 100 person days
  • for participation you need to be at least Eclipse Solution member
  • Ralph explaining commons
    • clear vision
    • clear rules
    • progress monitoring
    • sanctions / conflict resolutions
    • self determination
  • SUMO as commons
    • needed: developers and funding
    • list of wanted features
    • do not ignore base funding / technical debt
  • sharing / common funding is the main goal
  • direct orders are still possible
  • funding is decided on year by year
    • should be enough to do some "real work"
  • for research orgs there is little access to free funding
  • still in incubation / setup phase
  • in the next few weeks decide on structure
  • after the incubation year decide how and whether the WG will continue

Administrative Topics (meeting continues with fewer participants now in German)

  • Task for this year: Find a sustainable funding model
  • Wish: Have a successful Working group also after this one year
  • It is one of the tasks of the founding members to find more / new members especially to have more paying members than just Bosch
    • Aim: at least 1 (better 4) OEMs in the Working group
    • Ongoing talks with Daimler and VW
    • Wish: Every member should consider acting as a multiplicator for the WG. Every further member reduces the cost (or increases the benefit) for all.
  • TU Braunschweig Institut Fahrzeugtechnik:
    • Contribution rather in work hours, not money except for projects / public funding
    • The consortium does not only address the industry (and its money). Distribution of the workload is also an aim (this part is of interest to Prof. Friedrich)
  • SUMO is getting more sub-microscopic
  • Bosch: SUMO should be able to do more than fuel consumption, power train etc.
    • Put more emphasis on coupling simulators

Steering committee elections

  • Every participant member of the WG is member of the Steering committee and has one vote
  • Committers and guests cannot vote directly
  • Committers select two representatives which are members of the steering committee without voting rights
    • This selection process will be initiated by a mail to sumo-dev to find candidates and a subsequent election in the next two to four weeks.
  • Only committers can push to git repositories directly to ensure clean code and adherence to Eclipse regulations
  • Election chair of steering committee:
    • Single candidate: Robert Hilbrich
    • By unanimous vote: Robert is chair
  • Proposed change to charter:
  • Change duration to the range 13.5.19-12.5.20
    • By unanimous vote: charter is changed duration of the chair election period is 13.5.19-12.5.20

General Organisation

  • Frequency of Telcos/ Meetings:
    • Twice a year face to face (on different locations)
    • Proposal: Telcos at least monthly, in the beginning every two weeks, later less often
    • Proposal accepted
  • Skype for Business Telcos provided by DLR
  • There is a wiki which will contain this protocol and will be linked by the web site (and / or vice versa)
  • There is a mailing list: https://accounts.eclipse.org/mailing-list/openmobility
  • There is a twitter account: https://www.twitter.com/open_mobility
  • We need a Feature Tracker
    • Jira, GitHub or Tuleap
    • Jira needs a license (maybe a cost free version is available) and has frequent updates with many changes in core functions but Vector already uses it
    • All three tools meet the basic needs
    • SUMO’s GitHub cannot be the only point of contact because also SUMO independent topics should be tracked
    • Proposal: Everyone tests Tuleap (Ralphs favorite because it is open source) and we decide later
  • Later we need marketing sldies and our own repository
  • More infrastructure needed?
  • DLR sends doodle for next telco: https://terminplaner4.dfn.de/next-openmobility-telco only to the mailing list. (dudle von TU Braunschweig)
  • There is an archive for the mailing list https://www.eclipse.org/lists/openmobility/
  • We already have a web site: https://openmobility.eclipse.org/
    • Generated by a static site generator written in Go (https://gohugo.io/)
    • Meeting Item and protocol will be on the web site and/or in the wiki
  • Code contributions to your own / new Eclipse project
  • Ralph mailto:ralph.mueller@eclipse-foundation.org and Angelika mailto:angelika.wittek@eclipse-foundation.org are happy to help out if problems / questions occur also with every other topic
