Autoware Maps WG Meeting #5

The next Autoware Maps WG Meeting will be held soon, please vote for your preferred time, I will close voting tonight (BST) and post a link to the Zoom meeting when done.

At this meeting we will be considering the various use cases for maps within the Autoware self-driving car stack.

The following people have volunteered to present some use cases on areas that they are most familiar with:
The following meeting will review map use cases - with a view to deriving maps requirements - from the following perspectives:

  • OpenPlanner + objection detection + prediction - @Hatem
  • Traffic regulation - @simon-t4
  • Semantic map localisation - @oscar
  • LanesPlanner - @mitsudome-r

We accept that this is not going to be a complete set of use cases for maps, but it will be a starting point from which we can begin the architecture discussion.

As a reminder, all are welcome to attend the meetings, please invite others who you feel may be interested.


Brian Holt is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

here is the generalised HD map use case for stop/proceed vehicle behaviour for traffic lights. I don’t know if it’s useful for valet parking task, which is the target application, but perhaps some common functionality (beyond parking lot) should be included for purposes of map design/architecture. A map design purely for valet parking might be very different to one for general driving.

Here are the generalized use cases related to lane planner package. As Simon mentioned, some might not be suitable for valet parking.Generalized Use Cases of HD Map Messages(LanePlanner).pdf (882.4 KB)
