What is Autoware.AI?
Autoware.AI is the first all-in-one open-source software for autonomous driving technology. Autoware.AI is based on ROS 1, and Autoware.AI source code is available under the Apache 2.0 license.
The Robot Operating System (ROS) is a flexible framework for robotic software development. ROS provides a collection of tools and libraries that simplify the task of developing robust, general-purpose robot software. ROS includes the following:
- An original build system called Catkin
- An OpenCV image processing library
- A ROSBAG-based simulation environment for people who do not own real autonomous vehicles
The following diagram shows a high-level overview of an example system that is based on Autoware:
