Maliput_dragway is an implementation of Maliput's API that allows users to instantiate a multilane dragway. All lanes in the dragway are straight, parallel, and in the same segment. The ends of each lane are connected together via a "magical loop" that results in vehicles traveling on the Dragway's lanes instantaneously teleporting from one end of the lane to the opposite end of the lane.

The number of lanes and their lengths, widths, and shoulder widths are all user specifiable.

Note: For full information about Maliput please visit Maliput Documentation.

API Documentation

Refer to Maliput Dragway's Online API Documentation.


Getting Started page is a good place for starting to see Maliput's capabilities and how to use a Maliput backend for getting a road network.


Supported platforms

Ubuntu Focal Fossa 20.04 LTS.

Binary Installation on Ubuntu

See Installation Docs.

Source Installation on Ubuntu


sudo apt install python3-rosdep python3-colcon-common-extensions


  1. Create colcon workspace if you don't have one yet.
    mkdir colcon_ws/src -p
