Im not going to speak for TRI-ADs intentions, but a relevant piece of information is that valet parking is not a big thing in Japan.
It's not a big thing in Europe either, but AVP is an excellent usecase for Autoware.Auto (and Autoware.AI):
- Not on public roads, so while safety is still important, we are minimizing risks, and permits and insurance are hopefully easier to obtain.
- Low speeds.
- Maps for the most part don't change.
- Very few pedestrians.
- No cyclists.
- We have partners within the foundation that are already working on AVP as a product/service (e.g. Parkopedia), so we can leverage their expertise.
- Simpler to simulate.
- It is a useful and real usecase, it's not a synthetic demo that won't have any kind of impact.
@Brian_Holt wrote a great article detailing why AVP is the most likely self-driving technology to be deployed in real cars in the short/medium term http://avp-project.uk/why-autonomous-valet-parking
