This action will force synchronization from ApolloAuto/apollo, which will overwrite any changes that you have made since you forked the repository, and can not be recovered!!!
Synchronous operation will process in the background and will refresh the page when finishing processing. Please be patient.
First check and make sure you are in development docker container before you proceed. Now you will need to build from the source. If you want to run the entire system, make sure you have an nVidia GPU and that you have installed the Linux nVidia drivers. You could still proceed with the next few steps even if you are missing the Linux nVidia drivers, as the system will run but with the CUDA-based perception and other modules.
# To get a list of build commands ./apollo.sh # To make sure you start clean ./apollo.sh clean # This will build the full system and requires that you have an nVidia GPU with nVidia drivers loaded bash apollo.sh build
If you do not have an nVidia GPU, the system will run but with the CUDA-based perception and other modules. You must
dbg for debug mode or
opt for optimized code
./apollo.sh build_no_perception dbg
If you make modifications to the Dreamview frontend, then you must run
./apollo.sh build_fe before you run the
If the computer is very slow, you can enter the following command to limit the CPU.
bash apollo.sh build --local_resources 2048,1.0,1.0
Follow the steps below to launch Apollo. Note that you must build the system first before you run it. Note that the bootstrap.sh will actually succeed but the user interface will not come up if you skip the build step.
Running Apollo will start the ROS core and then startup a web user interface called Dreamview, this is handled by the bootstrap script, so from within the docker container, you should run:
# start module monitor bash scripts/bootstrap.sh
Access Dreamview by opening your favorite browser, e.g. Chrome, go to http://localhost:8888 and you should see this screen However, there will be nothing running in the system.
From the dropdown box selet "Navigation" mode.
To see if the system works, use the demo 'record' which feeds the system.
# You can now replay this demo "record" in a loop with the '-l' flag cyber_recorder play -f docs/demo_guide/demo_3.5.record -l
Dreamview should show a running vehicle now. (The following image might be different due to changes in frontend.)
Congratulations! You have successfully built out Apollo!! If you do have the necessary Hardware setup, please go back to our Readme for additional guidelines.
