Autoware.AI is being moved from GitHub to GitLab. The host move is pretty much complete, with all the source now moved to GitLab and into different repositories depending on functionality. You can find the source at its new home here:
The wiki has similarly been moved; it is now located here:
As always, contributions to improving the documentation are welcome.
Along with moving the code and splitting it into different packages, we have changed how you get the Autoware.AI source. Instead of directly cloning a huge repository and running a script that hides the build process, we are moving to a more ROS-native method using
vcs to construct a
colcon workspace. This allows us to avoid using git submodules, manage the versions of dependencies easily, include additional algorithms from non-Autoware repositories, and provide variants of Autoware adapted for different purposes. The new from-source installation instructions are available in the wiki:
There are still some parts of the source code reorganisation to be done. Most notably, the scripts that you have used until now to launch Autoware are not yet merged into their new home, which will be a package in the
utilities repository. For now, you can either download them directly from the
autoware repository or you can grab them from the merge request for their new package. Note that once the merge request is merged, the scripts will be deleted from the
autoware repository. However we will update the installation and quick start instructions at that time to account for the change.
This is a fairly major change for Autoware.AI, so if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask and we will try to clarify them.
