Hi guys, I started working with autoware because I want to use the semantic map for my research in indoor robotics, however I cant find information relate to it, how it is built and the tags that are used, for example for the lane.csv the columns have names like lno, lanecfgfg, etc. How do I know what these tags mean and how the car uses it?

Is it there a document where I can find the architecture of how the semantic maps are being created and consumed?

I appreciate your help, thank you very much.

Hi! Do you mean vector map?? It is internal format of a map company in Japan.(https://www.aisantec.co.jp/english/) We also think using internal format is very very bad in terms of usability of Autoware. So, we are talking about changing to other open map format such as OpenDrive,Lanelet. ( https://discourse.ros.org/t/autoware-... )

Hi,

If by semantic maps you mean the vector map format, unfortunately Vector Maps is a proprietary map format owned by a third party company. Documentation is not available.

Autoware Release 1.12 ( https://discourse.ros.org/t/dates-for... ) will include map converters to open source formats such as Lanelets2 (OSM format).

In general they contain information describing road layout, lane rules (changing, branching, merging) and traffic signal information, which is used to verify vehicle routes.
