Real-Time Innovations (RTI) announced RTI 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. With Connext Drive 3.0, OEMs can get their next-generation vehicle to market faster by using the same framework from prototype to production. Its unmatched architectural versatility minimizes the amount of custom communication and integration code users have to develop.
Based on the Data Distribution Service (DDS™) standard, Connext Drive 3.0 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.
