Autoware.ai 1.13 Released!

Autoware.ai 1.13 is now available for general use and it’s our biggest release yet with over 230 accepted merge requests!
To install it from source, follow the building from source instructions or to run in a Docker container, see the Docker instructions.

Docker images are available at Dockerhub:

amd64 Containers
arm64 cross-compile Containers
arm64 native Containers

With either the from-source or Docker version of Autoware.ai, you can try it out using some recorded data by following this guide .

This is a list of the major changes in Autoware 1.13:

  • Autoware.ai now supports the Lanelet2 mapping format! Check out the new lanelet2aisan and all associated nodes (autoware#17)
  • A “Failsafe Action Framework” was implemented to handle the transition to a safe state when a system fault has been confirmed by a monitoring system which lives outside of ROS (common!40 and common#4)
  • The MPC Waypoints Follower now uses qpOASES as a QP (quadratic programming) solver
  • rviz now has a clean, new default layout (autoware#25)
  • A new engage/disengage panel was added to rviz to enable easy control of a by-wire-system interface (utilities!21)
  • Building your own or using existing Docker containers for Autoware.ai is now much simpler - Check out the docker repo (and specifically the generic/build.sh, generic/run.sh, and crossbuild/build_cross_image.sh scripts)
  • Nightly Docker builds! (see the tags with bleedingedge)
  • Full Support for ROS Melodic Morenia and C++14 (ROS Kinetic is no longer supported)
  • Easy waypoint creation with the new waypoint_creator package (core_planning!15)
  • Numerous bug fixes and smaller changes; see the full list of changes below

There are some known issues in 1.13.

As always, the current reported issues can be viewed on the issue tracker and the current
proposed bug fixes and new features can be viewed on the merge request tracker .

And a big thanks to all the contributors, reviewers, and maintainers!
