Following on from the first alpha, we now have alpha.2.

The major change in this alpha is the move to GitLab and the split repositories. The new install instructions have not yet been written, but in a nutshell here is how to get and build Autoware 1.12.0-alpha.2 from source:

  1. Download the autoware.ai.repos file from the repository and remember where you saved it.
  2. Run the following commands to download and build Autoware
    mkdir -p autoware/src
    cd autoware
    vcs import src < ~/path/to/autoware.ai.repos
    rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro $ROS_DISTRO
    colcon build

For Google Chrome users:
It seems like Google Chrome changes the file name to autoware.ai.txt when downloading autoware.ai.repos from above link. Content does not change so just change the filename after download. (Firefox worked fine)

I created the feedback issue about 1.12.0-alpha.2 release based on our experiment on the real vehicle. Please check and let us know what do you think.

I’ve updated the instructions to fix the issue that @mitsudome-r mentions above. There are also instructions there for the upcoming 1.12.0-beta.1.
