During the most recent TSC meeting, the TSC members agreed to change how we manage the technical activities of the Autoware Foundation. Rather than coordinating everything via the TSC, we are going to shift to using topic-specific working groups. The TSC will retain its oversight role and coordinate the working groups at a high level to ensure that activities and focus are coordinated properly, but the detailed management of technical activities will be handled by the individual working groups.
The four working groups that will be set up initially are:
- Autoware, led by @gbiggs and @esteve, managing the development of the open-source Autoware projects
- Vehical interfaces, led by @Antonis_Skardasis and @Lee_Baldwin, designing and developing interfaces for controlling vehicles
- Map data and formats, led by @Brian_Holt and @simon-t4 or @mitsudome-r, figuring out how we manage and use map data
- ECU/Platform (temporary name), led by @sstrahm and one other volunteer
Participation in the working groups is open to all. You do not need to be a member of a TSC or a member of the Autoware Foundation. We encourage anyone interested to participate and contribute to the development of Autoware and related projects.
Look for announcements from each individual working group in this category over the next few days about how they will start their activities.
