Hello community,

stupid question, but not clear for me, in the context of ROS:

What is autoware ?

What is the relationship with ros ? I did not understand the hype (a lot of traffic) at ros discussion forum.

Thank for some hints :-)

Cheers Chrimo

Autoware is a framework for self-driving built on top of ROS. You can think of it as the self-driving vehicle equivalent of something like MoveIt. While the current version is built on ROS 1, the next version is being built on ROS 2 with a much greater focus on things like safety, security and robustness.

I'm not sure I would call the increase in traffic on Discourse "hype". It's more that the traffic has moved there from elsewhere, mainly the GitHub issue tracker. The project has been around for quite a while.

Hi Geoff,

Million thanks to you, this will solve the knot in my brain :-) I've noticed a lot of professional planing, management and work.

Sorry for the hype :-)

Cheers Chrimo

Autoware.AI is the world's first "All-in-One" open-source software for autonomous driving technology.

It is based on ROS 1 and available under Apache 2.0 license

OK, seems to be a ROS Project and not any new replacement ;-)
