Kudan is pleased to announce that it has joined The Autoware Foundation (hereafter AWF), an international non-profit organization that hosts the Autoware project, the world’s leading open source software project for autonomous driving.

AWF aims to establish the collaborative development framework and standard for self-driving technology with the open-source software Autoware*. The Autoware project lowers the entry barrier to autonomous driving technology and enables commercial deployment in a broad range of vehicles and applications.

To advance the commercialization and adoption of its proprietary artificial perception technology, Kudan has been expanding its compatibility with various open source technologies related to autonomous driving and robotics. By joining AWF, which includes many global companies and organizations involved in autonomous driving, Kudan expects not only to collaborate on technology compatibility with Autoware software, but also to significantly accelerate business partnerships and joint projects with participating companies. This collaboration is anticipated to expand the number of autonomous driving projects, including new market opportunities.

Various standards are being promoted worldwide for the large-scale societal implementation of autonomous driving. Kudan would contribute to specification formulation and development activities for achieving widespread implementation of autonomous driving globally, and also aim to continue increasing the market competitiveness of its proprietary technology in conjunction with all industry standards.
