Centers of Excellence

Make Autoware
Development Easy & Effective

Easy -> Develop a Ready-to-install system supported by training tutorials and Ready to-run use cases through reference designs in simulation & on deployed vehicles.

Efficient -> Develop a solid perception, planning and control stack with well-defined functionality and instructions for extensions.

Working Together

Autoware Foundation Centers of Excellence is initiated at the Pennovation Center of the University of Pennsylvania and now spread over 11 universities in around the world, and continues to expand.

Each Autoware Foundation Centers of Excellence brings fresh energy and effort to make Autoware development easy and efficient mission for a success.
