Software framework bridges all automotive ecosystems
Real-Time Innovations (RTI) has introduced a software solution for automated driving. Connext Drive, as the integrated framework is baptized, spans both research and production technologies, thus greatly facilitating the development of highly autonomous vehicles. According to RTI, it bridges all automotive software ecosystems including DDS, ROS2, Autosar Classic and Autosar Adaptive.

Connext Drive includes a native Software Development Kit (SDK) for developing and integrating vehicle applications. Because it is built on the open Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard, it implements data-centric connectivity that offers a virtual distributed shared memory. This lets advanced algorithms get all the data they need while reducing in-vehicle wiring.

The DDS standard is specified by all the important automotive ecosystems, including ROS2, Autosar, and several commercial designs. This lets Connext Drive be the first – and only – platform that can integrate DDS, ROS2, Autosar Classic, and Autosar Adaptive, letting OEMs work with the selection of standards that best meets their needs at different points in the innovation cycle. According to RTI, Connext Drive is the only proven, standards-based solution specifically built for current and future development of intelligent, autonomous vehicles.

Connext Drive’s functionality spectrum includes security, evolution management, redundancy, safety and unique system development tools. With its associated tool set, the software addresses many of the challenges carmakers are facing today, including cyber security, the constant change of the hardware / software environment in vehicles as they are continuously further developed, and the reliability of multiple safety-critical sensor signals.
