I am unable to build autoware with GPU support. I just downgraded CUDA to 10.0 and tried to built by using CUDA Support.

Operating System: Ubuntu 18.04 ROS: Melodic GCC version: GCC (Ubuntu 7.4.0-1ubuntu1~18.04.1) 7.4.0 CMake version : 3.10.2 ROS distribution: melodic ROS installation type: sudo apt-get install ros-melodic-desktop-full GPU MODEL: GeForce GTX 1060M CUDA Version: 10 CUDNN Version: 7.5 Autoware Installation type : Built from source ( Autoware Version : 1.12.0 EIgen Version : 3.3.7

I thought we might start to run into CUDA compatability problems soon. Can you please run the following commands and provide the output?

@AM97 - Please also give me the output of uname -r. I need to know which kernel version you are running. Also, make sure that there are not multiple versions of CUDA installed. You can check to see if there are multiple NVCCs by doing:

sudo updatedb
sudo locate nvcc
Josh Whitley gravatar image Josh Whitley  ( 2019-08-14 13:02:41 -0500 )edit

@Maximus5684 uname -r 4.15.0-55-generic and the output of sudo locate nvcc is in this gistfile (

AM97 gravatar image AM97  ( 2019-08-14 13:11:05 -0500 )edit

The version in /usr/bin/nvcc is a problem - this file belongs to the Ubuntu package nvidia-cuda-toolkit which is an old version of CUDA (9.1). Please run the following command:

sudo apt purge nvidia-cuda-*
sudo apt autoremove

and then clean (delete build/, install/, and log/) your Autoware workspace, and re-build using

AUTOWARE_COMPILE_WITH_CUDA=1 colcon build --cmake-args -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug

@AM97 You are currently using the version of CUDA that is provided by Ubuntu. On Ubuntu 18.04, you MUST install version 10.0 directly from Nvidia. To make sure that you do not have the version from Ubuntu, do the following:

sudo apt purge nvidia-cuda*
sudo apt autoremove

Then, to install 10.0, carefullyfollow the instructions at Do not install the nvidia-cuda-toolkit or nvidia-cuda-dev packages from the Ubuntu repositories - these install CUDA 9.1, which is not compatible with Autoware on Ubuntu 18.04.

In addition, on Ubuntu 18.04, you must upgrade the version of Eigen that is provided with Ubuntu by following the instructions at

After the above is done, you should be able to build with AUTOWARE_COMPILE_WITH_CUDA=1 to enable CUDA capabilities.

@Maximus5684 Thanks for the help. After some time I found it now I installed directly from NVidia. Now it was built successfully. Thanks a lot for your quick help.

It is just a matter of time until NVidia breaks everything again xD
