Opening remarks and new member introductions (Board)
- New member: NXP Semiconductors
Confirmation of previous minutes (All)
Action items from previous meeting (All)
- Follow up on why StreetDrone’s and ITDLab’s new representatives are not in the TSC meetings
- Action taken Attempted to contact ITDLab but no response.
- Update Linaro and Arm representatives about the setup of native Arm runners for CI
Action taken Native CI runner is up and running on Arm hardware, and Autoware.AI is building
correctly on it.
- Run a vote on GitHub vs GitLab
- Action taken Vote was held via email.
- Set up a follow-up meeting to discuss the AutoSAR proposal, including some people who have experience with AutoSAR
- Action taken Yang and eSOL have held discussions. Will present something in the next TSC meeting.
Report from CES2020
- Autoware Meetup took place with 6 presentations
- AWF shinpei_awf2020.pdf (866.2 KB)
- AVP2020 update https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1ZeQdDURtRYPkb0HOqOAQubidCpsEZe9_RPrxwSI38OE/edit?usp=sharing
- We had Autoware Happy Hour@Apex.AI Booth, which was attended by 60 to 70 people
- There is a lot of interest in Autoware, but we need to start thinking about how we can allow
businesses using Autoware to deliver value to their customers. One idea is moving forward with
the reference platform concept.
GitLab versus GitHub
An email vote was held from January 6 to January 15.
That the Autoware Foundation moves all Autoware-related repositories (including but not limited to Autoware.AI and Autoware.Auto) from their current location at GitLab to GitHub.
12 responses were received:
- In favour of the proposal: 10
- Against the proposal: 2
- Abstained: 6
- In order to focus on the AVP demo work, we will not move until after this demo is complete in May, 2020.
- @JWhitleyWork has just about got the native Arm runners working for Autoware.AI.
- Vehicle interface for for LGSVL will be done this week: https://gitlab.com/autowarefoundation/autoware.auto/AutowareAuto/issues/173
- LGSVL can be launched as part of
- NDT localizer just needs the final plumbing https://gitlab.com/autowarefoundation/autoware.auto/AutowareAuto/issues?scope=all&utf8=✓&state=opened&search=ndt
- Trajectory replaying mock planner is under construction.
- Simulator integration is being significantly improved by LGE.
- Localisation will be done using the upstream
- The ROS 2 implementation of SSC is currently undergoing testing and code review, and should be available soon (well before we need it).
- The work continues to be coordinated in the weekly Autonomy Software WG meetings. Anyone interested in participating should join this working group.
Working group report: Maps and routing (@Brian_Holt, @mitsudome-r)
We had one meeting since the last TSC meeting: https://gitlab.com/autowarefoundation/autoware-foundation/-/wikis/Maps-and-Routing-working-group/Maps-and-Routing-WG-Minutes-20200109
Work is now focused on delivering the requirements for the AVP2020 demo.
Working group report: Autonomy Hardware (@cheng.chen, @sstrahm)
Autonomy Hardware Working Group
- List of Reference Hardware Platform 2020
- Description of AVP hardware platform
- Details for the platform being used for AVP demo
- Will work with Dejan
- Description of Autocore PCU
- List of supported sensors
- Configuration of SW
- Will work with Cheng
- Description of next potential Platform
- Submission welcomed
- Expecting to contact NXP for Bluebox (Ali ?)
- Description of AVP hardware platform
- Alignment with Autoware ODD, per ODD:
- List of typical/required sensors
- List of typical/required compute
- Mapping with Hardware Platforms (available and planned)
- Bring attention from member on helping on this Working Group
- Happy to drive the group but need technical, wise advice to make it happen
- Understanding we need to provide value for this. The value will come when member will understand the advantages to have reference platform for Autoware
- Plan (proposal)
- H1 2020
- List of Platform(s) and aligning ODD / Platform
- Draft Requirements for Platform
- H2 2020
- Advertise Platforms per ODD
- Compile and consolidate Reqs / Specs
- H1 2020
Autoware Model Zoo proposal from Arm
- A proposal for organising, documenting and sharing neural networks that are used in the
autonomous driving stack.
- Organise neural networks by AD tasks.
- The model zoo would have benefits to a variety of audiences, including new users, benchmarkers,
prototypers, and contributors.
- The model zoo would allow us to track the provenance of models, follow the state-of-the-art, and
provide a peer review process for bringing in new or improved models.
- The model zoo can be easily implemented using Git.
AWF board proposal for 2020 goals
- Focus on defining a reference platform including architecture, API for edge and cloud, and
operational design domain.
- Five proposed ODDs:
- No pedestrians, no cars
- No pedestrians but cars, low speed
- No pedestrians but cars, high speed
- Pedestrians and cars, geofenced
- Pedestrians and cars, unlimited
