Autoware ODD working group: Call for participation

In Technical Steering Committee Meetings #19, Autoware Foundation decided to start a new working group for ODD definition.

I’m Hiroshi IGATA, a new member with Tier IV. I have a long experience in automotive OEM in chassis control, connected technology, and MaaS business development etc. I was chosen as one of the leads for this ODD Working group in the Autoware Foundation’s Technical Steering Committee Meeting #19 on Wednesday, and would would like to announce the ODD Working Group. I hope that I can facilitate this working group well leveraging my past experience.

The purpose of the Working Group is to define the ODD chosen by TSC and the associated scenarios in machine readable format which can best visualize the evolution and capability of Autoware. The output will include detailed/parametrized ODD definition and the reasonably comprehensive list of associated use case scenarios in the machine readable format.

“Building-to-building transport of cargo that will include indoor travel” was selected by TSC as the next ODD to work on.

We will begin with weekly meetings. After populating the participant list by EoB Thursday, June 24 (your time), I would like to do a quick Doodle poll. Initial meetings will be at 12:00 PM (midnight) (JST) to make it easier for participants from both Europe and US time zones. (see below for the meeting information). I wish to have the first meeting by the end of this month, if possible.

The regular time is to be decided based on who wants to participate in the working group, so if you are interested then speak up here even if you can’t join the first meeting!

Most of our coordination will be via GitLab 4. Zoom conferences will mainly be used to catch up on progress overviews and discuss tricky issues that are hard to do via text.

I encourage anyone who is interested in seeing Autoware progress and contributing to that through ODD definition and use case description to join the working group. We are open to all, no matter your affiliation or skill set. ODD definition does not require coding skill, but your engineering sense.

Since I’m the Software Architect for the AWF, it probably goes without saying but I will say it anyway: I want to join! Thanks for agreeing to head up this very important group for the AWF, @Hiroshi_IGATA and welcome to Autoware!

Hi, would love to join and contribute! While I’m new and unknown here on ROS discourse, I’m commited to accelerate engagement and believe/hope this is an area where I could become productive rather quickly.

Count me in too, sounds exciting

This sounds fun, I would like to contribute.

We are very keen to participate and support this WG - ODD definition is critical for us to shape where we go from here for Autoware.

Count me in too. and like to contribute

see below for the meeting information

Where should I refer to know about meeting information?
is this link (https://gitlab.com/autowarefoundation) what you meant?

Great Igata-san. Craig Johnson and I would both like to participate, or at least one of us will attend each meeting if we can’t both attend, if that is OK. Thank you for organizing and leading.

Would love to participate. One note, should we move thing to github as everything else is moving there?

Sorry, just a moment. I’m working on it.

“meeting info” meant the time zone idea which I wrote below.

Hi,

Thank you so much for your interest!

I created an open Doodle poll for the 1st weekly meeting of ODD Working group next week.

I’d appreciate it if you can vote asap, hopefully by Sunday, your time.

If you find any issue with this link, please let me know.

Regards,

Hi,

I’ve closed the Doodle poll and chose the time slot in which everyone who responded to the poll can attend. If you didn’t have a chance to reply, you can of course join if you are available. You are welcome to join from next week if you cannot make it this week.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thanks,

Thank you for joining the first weekly meeting yesterday.

Here’s the poll for next week.

And, just in case, here’s the link to our meeting agenda/minutes on GitLab issues. (I’m still working on it.)

Thanks!

Hi, Jit,

Thank you for joining the first meeting.

As you see on GItlab, Mitsudome-san kindly put the table based on the ODD definition in the NHTSA document. I hope we can brush this up and make it a formal process of ODD definition of ours.

Will you be able to examine the similar document from PEGASUS and see if there’s any perspective or information to add to or modify this table?

The link is here.

Thanks.

Hi, David,

Thank you for joining the first meeting.

As you see on GItlab, Mitsudome-san kindly put the table based on the ODD definition in the NHTSA document. I hope we can brush this up and make it a formal process of ODD definition of ours.

Will you be able to examine the similar document from RAND Corporation and see if there’s any perspective or information to add to or modify this table by our next meeting?

The link is here.

Thanks.

@gustavovelascoh Thank you for responding to the Doodle poll for ODD WG #2. I’m sorry but the response from other members are slow, and I’m afraid it’s too late to announce #2 ODD WG meeting at Jul 8, WED,12:00 AM-1:00 AM (Japan Time=JST), the only time slot you are available this week.

I’m really sorry but please check the Gitlab “issue” and try to join from next week.

Thank you once again for your interest.

Hi,

I’ve closed the Doodle poll for ODD WG meeting #2 and chose the following time slot, though not too many of you responded. Sorry it’s Friday midnight if you’re joining from eastern Asia.

Anyone who’s interested can join from the following link. And, you’re welcome to join from next week if you cannot make it this week.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thanks,

I’ve been requested to report progress of ODD WG by end of July 14 for the technical steering committee (TSC).

Would like to discuss today in our second meeting meeting.
