RTI SHOWCASES CONNEXT DRIVE 3.0, THE COMMUNICATION FRAMEWORK FOR SOFTWARE-DEFINED VEHICLES, AT CES 2024
>> RTI Automotive Experts Demonstrated Four Scenarios Showcasing the Functionality of Connext Drive Across Various Use Cases
SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the largest software framework company for autonomous systems, exhibited at CES 2024, showcasing Connext Drive® 3.0: The flexible, future-proof, and data-centric communication framework for software-defined vehicles (SDVs). It expedites time to market by providing the first platform-independent adherence to the highest functional safety standard, ISO26262 ASIL D, and bridges the platform gap between DDS, AUTOSAR Classic, AUTOSAR Adaptive and ROS 2.
Based on the Data Distribution Service (DDS™) standard, the latest version of Connext Drive delivers on the promise of safer, more flexible and adaptable automotive systems by forging a pathway between functional safety and innovation. In automotive, RTI works with more than 25 companies who use Connext to accelerate their software-defined programs.
RTI provided hands-on demonstrations of how its latest solution can accelerate SDV development with its unique communication capabilities both in and off vehicle. The demos showcased how Connext Drive works with the following use cases:
1. Dynamic Zonal Architecture: This shows interconnected, multi-vendor hardware and operating system platforms that use Connext Drive to share data across a modern Zonal Architecture.
2. High Performance Compute: This shows DDS managing the dataflow on high performance processor platforms to integrate different functions from domains such as AD/ADAS and PowerTrain/Vehicle Control.
3. Digital Cockpit: This highlights multi-vendor interoperability in creating a digital display that collects various types of vehicle data from ECUs and sensors, spread across the vehicle.
4. Simulation and Testing: This highlights the latest in automotive simulation and testing. Based on Connext Drive, the demo showcases how real-time data flow enables unique functionalities for HIL and SIL.
