Our Story

Autoware was officially released in August, 2015

Day 1 of our great vision, “Intelligent Vehicles For Everyone”.

Tier IV was founded by Shinpei Kato in December, 2015

To make a creative and disruptive ecosystem of intelligent vehicles with Autoware.

Tier IV deployed self-driving vehicles as PoCs across Japan in 2016

Safety for challenge. Challenge for safety.

Tier IV was qualified to operate driverless intelligent vehicles on domestic public roads in 2017

No one had ever done it before, so we did it.

Tier IV, together with Apex.AI and Linaro/96Boards, established The Autoware Foundation in 2018

Autoware flying high.

Tier IV started a pilot service with “Milee”, a real driverless intelligent vehicle, in March, 2019

For those who need intelligent vehicles to live.

METI adopted Autoware as a standard of AD safety benchmark in June, 2019

Towards all Japan safety.

Tier IV raised approx. $113M in total in Series A in August, 2019

Commitment to production of intelligent vehicles as a global open platformer.
