RTI is an active member of these and other industry associations:
AUTomotive Open Systems ARchitecture (AUTOSAR) is a worldwide development partnership of vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, and other leading companies in the electronics, semiconductor and software industries. AUTOSAR is the driving organization behind the world’s largest standardized automotive architecture working to form the basis for reliably controlling the growing complexity of electrical and electronic systems in vehicles.
RTI joins as a development partner to contribute to the development of the AUTOSAR standard, sharing the company’s expertise in autonomous vehicles.
The Autonomous Vehicle Computing Consortium (AVCC) is a group of automotive and technology industry leaders coming together to help accelerate the delivery of safe and affordable autonomous vehicles at scale.
The AVCC will define a reference architecture and platform to meet the autonomous performance goals within the power, thermal and size constraints of a vehicle. This computing platform will be designed specifically to move today’s prototype systems to deployment at scale. The group will also develop the requirements for software APIs for each building block in an autonomous system.
The DDS Foundation is a nonprofit community of interest for users and developers of the family of Data Distribution Service (DDS) standards. It was formed in March 2019 to accelerate the adoption and use of DDS in the era of smart machines and intelligence at the
RTI is a founding member of the DDS Foundation and holds two positions on the DDS Foundation Executive Council.
The Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) Consortium is an aviation-focused professional group made up of U.S. industry suppliers, customers and users whose aim is to standardize approaches to bring open standards solutions to avionics systems.
RTI contributes to the architecture team and offers a commercial Transport Services Segment (TSS) module based on DDS.
Integrating Clinical Environments (ICE) Alliance is a non-profit organization committed to establishing healthcare environments that are safe, secure, and interoperable.
RTI was instrumental in helping MDPnP develop the ICE standard, ASTM F2761. ICE uses DDS for its data transport.
The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) is an open membership, international not-for-profit organization that is setting the architectural framework and direction for the Industrial Internet.
RTI's CEO is on the Steering Committee and chairs the testbed subcommittee. RTI co-chairs the Connectivity, Security, Data management & interoperability, and Ecosystem groups. RTI is a lead on three public testbeds: Microgrid, Healthcare, and Edge Intelligence.
National Security Technology Accelerator (NSTXL) is a consortium management firm of Other Transaction Agreements (OTAs), providing its members with acquisition services to the US federal government.
The Object Management Group (OMG) is an international, open membership, not-for-profit technology standards consortium that develops technology standards providing real-world value for thousands of vertical industries. OMG brings together its international membership of end-users, vendors, government agencies, universities and research institutions to develop and revise these standards.
RTI's CTO is on the OMG board and co-chairs the DDS working group.
The Robot Operating System (ROS) Consortium provides a flexible framework for writing robot software to encourage collaborative robotics software development.
RTI works extensively with the OSRF to support the integration of DDS into ROS 2.0.
The Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) is a nonprofit organization that envisions a carbon-free world by 2050. Its mission is to facilitate the electric power industry’s smart transition to a clean and modern energy future through education, research, standards and collaboration.
RTI is a principal developer of the OpenFMB architecture that integrates Distributed Energy Resources (DER) such as solar, wind, and storage into the grid, based on DDS.
