I am currently running Ubuntu 18.04, Carla 0.9.7, AutoWare(1.12.0) and ROS melodic.

I want to run AutoWare with CARLA using the carla-autoware bridge ( However, one of the requirements is ROS Kinetic, but as specified above, im running ubuntu 18.04. 1. Is it possible to run Kinetic on Ubuntu 18.04 reliably so that I can run the bridge?(I read on the forums you can use a docker image but I am fairly new to it, and I am avoiding trying to downgrade my OS entirely to 16.04. 2. Will it be possible to run the bridge with ros melodic instead of kinetic?

As a side note, you may want to check out the newly-added carla_simulator_bridge package which was just added to Autoware.AI version 1.14.0-alpha.1, just released today!

According to their build instructions, Carla 0.9.7 supports Ubuntu 18.04. The bridge, however, looks like it hasn't been updated in some time. Based on this merge request, it looks like they're trying to integrate the bridge into I recommend using the fork from that MR to test this out.
