Connectivity solution for autonomous vehicle development
At embedded world 2020 (February 25th to 27th, Nuremberg/Germany), Real-Time Innovations (RTI) will present their connectivity solution for autonomous systems, which is proven across several markets including Industrial Automation, Robotics, Medical and Automotive. Here, RTI will focus on the new Automotive-grade connectivity solution, Connext Drive.
RTI’s connectivity software, Connext DDS, is based on the Data Distribution Serviceä (DDS) standard and accelerates the development, deployment and management of highly autonomous systems. The framework manages complex data distribution for real-time, scalable connectivity across platforms and systems.
It delivers optimised data processing, easier system integration, enhanced performance, simplified data recording, security and platform support. For example, Connext DDS provides the ability to integrate OPC UA into DDS systems, and run DDS with the emerging IEEE TSN set of standards. RTI will present a standardised OPC UA/DDS Gateway at the booth.
Connext Drive offers automakers the software they need to operate in diverse real-time environments, interoperate with other systems within the vehicle, connect to off-vehicle systems, evolve systems over time, develop reliable and high-performance systems, and build in top security.
It includes a software framework and a native Software Development Kit (SDK) for developing and integrating vehicle applications. It implements data-centric connectivity that offers a virtual distributed shared memory.
Connext Drive is the first platform that can integrate DDS, ROS2, AUTOSAR Classic, and AUTOSAR Adaptive, letting OEMs work with the standard or standards that best meets their needs at different points in the innovation cycle.
