Tier IV has published the work-in-progress source code built through rapid prototyping for the next-generation Autoware* architecture proposal, along with the dataset to test its new localization, perception, planning and control modules. This experimental early access to the architecture proposal enables the community to take advantage of the future experience of Autoware.

The proposal includes a layered architecture with a clean interface for algorithm modules and a prototype implementation of new cutting-edge algorithms. This layered architecture overcomes the current difficulties involved in modifying the algorithm modules, and thereby, facilitates code contributions from open-source developers.
Tier IV is now working with the Autoware Foundation members to merge this proposal into the growing Autoware.Auto project. Stay tuned.
