The Autoware Foundation is a non-profit organization created to facilitate the deployment of open source collaborative engineering Autoware projects, starting with Autoware.AI, Autoware.Auto, and Autoware.IO.

  • Autoware.AI is the original Autoware project started in 2015 by Shinpei Kato at Nagoya University. The open source self-driving solution is being used globally by more than 100 companies in more than 30 vehicles today.
  • Autoware.Auto is Autoware reimagined. Based on ROS 2, Autoware.Auto, applying best-in-class software engineering practices, has the objective is to facilitate the industrialization of Autoware.

Target applications include autonomous vehicles, intelligent storage in large-scale data centers, robotics, defense applications and drones.

Algorand Foundation Marks New Chapter in Global Economics with Inaugural Auction19.6.2019 23:56:00 EESTTiedote

The Algorand Foundation announced today the successful completion of its inaugural Algo auction, marking the launch of the Algorand platform and its original economic model that uses a unique combination of consensus-driven blockchain technology and economic incentives to ensure absolute fairness and broad participation in a new Borderless Economy.
