Description

Autoware is an open source platform for autonomous driving, with the largest autonomous driving open source community. Based on ROS, it has found widespread adoption among robotics and mobility related research and industry. So far, Autoware is used by 100+ companies, runs on 30+ vehicles, is used in 20+ countries, as well as for education in 5 countries. Autoware.AI is the original Autoware project build on ROS 1, launched as a research and development platform for autonomous driving technology for researchers, developers, and students interested in autonomous driving technology. Autoware.Auto is the next generation of Autoware based on ROS 2, managed by an open source community manager, applies best-in-class software engineering practices, and is based on a redesigned architecture.

The goal of this workshop is to introduce Autoware to the APSIPA community. This full-day workshop will be dedicated explain all the elements of Autoware, including how to bring it on a computer and a demonstration on a real vehicle.
