Autoware is the world's first "all-in-one" open-source software for self-driving vehicles hosted under the Autoware Foundation. Based on ROS 2.

Autoware.Auto as one of the projects of Autoware Foundation is a clean slate rewrite of Autoware.AI. Compared to Autoware.AI, Autoware.Auto has best possible software engineering practices which includes PR reviews, PR builds, 100% documentation, 100% code coverage, style guide, development and release process, …

It also does two more things differently: a) we have crisply defined interfaces for different modules (messages and APIs) and b) architecture designed for determinism such that it is possible to reproduce behaviors on live and development machines.
