ROSCon 2017: Autoware: ROS-based OSS for Urban Self-driving Mobility -- Shinpei Kato (The University of Tokyo)

Looking foward to ROSCon 2018 we're highlighting presentations from last year. The ROSCon 2018 registration is currently open. As well as the Call for Proposals.

The first talk at ROSCon 2017 was given by Shinpei Kato about the current state of Autoware a ROS-based open sources software platform for urban self driving mobility.



Autoware is open-source software (OSS) for urban self-driving mobility, empowered by ROS. It provides complete modules of perception, decision making, and control, which enables drive-by-wire vehicles to drive autonomously in public road environments. The current maintainer of Autoware is Tier IV, a Japanese academic startup company comprising professors and students. Automotive makers and suppliers now often use Autoware to build their research and development prototypes of self-driving mobility. Autoware has also been partly ported to ROS2. This talk will be of interest to any researchers, developers, and practitioners who are looking for opensource solution of self-driving mobility.
