Hi @staff I am currently testing AutowareAI with SVL simulator. However I am facing some issues, as described here: INTEGRATION: [PythonAPI + AutowareAI] or [VSE + AutowareAI] running in Docker (AutowareAI version: 1.14.0) Ubuntu 20.04 · Issue #1341 · lgsvl/simulator · GitHub
According to LG staff my notebook is not strong enough to run both SVL and Autoware AD stack simultaneously without having some failures in Modules.
According to the documentation: System requirements - SVL Simulator
I need to run both the simulator and the AD stack successfully the following requirements:
From my Aspire VX 15 notebook I have the following configuration:
Number of cores: 4 or 8 ?( I do not understand)
Speed of 2.80 GHz right? What means capacity = 4005 MHz = 4 Ghz. I am confuse now the speed is 2.8 GHz or 4 GHz?
Memory is around 4 Gb correct?
General System + Nvidia Graphic Card
Nvidia Card: Geforce GTX 1050 Ti
In a summarize comparing to the requirements of SVL documentation
A) I need 4 GHz Quad core CPU = 16 cores ?
I believe I have 4 cores right or is it dual?
B) Need 4 GHz CPU
Reality: 2.8 GHz or 4 GHz ?
Need at least: GTX1080 with 8GB memory
Reality: GTX 1050 Ti with 4 GB memory
GPU with at least 10 Gb of memory
Reality: Gpu with 4 Gb of memory
As far as I understood and from experience trying the software the modules will fail.
Then as solution, this following snippet of documentation suggest me to use a distributed system:
Actually it seems this strategy is even better than having a super powerful machine, as they say.
However I have nerver used 2 notebooks or different PCs integrated, and I do not know how to set this:
- Run SVL simulator on my machine (ok)
- Run The AutowareAI stack on other machine and force to connect with this first machine running the simulator ( How to set this)
I am not an expert on computers, then after the next step I would like some advice from you, regarding what would be more feasible (in terms of efficiency and money). In my case is just for a research, I just need the modules working regular, not the best performance. Then What would you suggest:
Chosse the distributed systems option:
Buy, rent or lend another notebook from a friend or store and try to run the AD Autoware Stack on this machine and run the simulator on my machine or the contrary? I ask this because I will probably get a less powerful machine than mine (because of price). And what would be the minimum specification for this machine to run the simulator or the AD stack?
Choose running run everything on the same machine:
Buy a new Nvidia GTX 1080 (8 GB memory) and install on my actual notebook (retrieving the current Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti). Actually I do not know if this is possible because of size of this?
In the past If I am not wrong Robot Ignite Academy offered the option to rent a machine from you, and pay for hour/week or months. I did not remember exactly. Does this option is possible? How much is it? And do you have machines that have these requirements? Would be possible to use these machines to run AutowareAI with SVL simulator together or would I need to rent 1 machine for the simulator for example and I run the AutowareAI stack on my machine integrated?
I will be very grateful for any suggestion.
Please let me know if exist other possibilities.
Thanks in advance.
