Connext Drive®: Trusted Software for Tomorrow's Vehicles

CES has quickly become the largest automotive technology event. While CES 2021 will be all-digital, we can expect the same inside peek into the future of mobility and how companies are navigating the Automotive industry's technology disruption.

Autonomous Vehicles will certainly bring monumental change to the Automotive industry, but there is another trend happening behind the scenes that is arguably even more disruptive – the rise of electric vehicles and a software-defined architecture. Electric vehicles are setting new standards for transportation, not simply because they are replacing the gas engine, but because they are primarily defined, and differentiated, by their software. But what makes them so different? How are they able to support faster innovation? Why is this approach better than the traditional hardware-centric approach? The answer lies in data centricity.

RTI is working with the most innovative automotive companies around the world – including Audi, Baidu Apollo, Xpeng Motors and more – who are building the autonomous and electric vehicles of the future. RTI Connext Drive® is the automotive-grade connectivity solution for autonomous vehicles, from development to production. Built on the open Data Distribution ServiceTM (DDS) standard, RTI's data-centric connectivity software is already proven in over 200 autonomous vehicle programs. Connext Drive provides real-time data connectivity, while reducing in-vehicle wiring and delivering standards-enforced reliability, redundancy and security.

Come and meet with us January 11-14 at CES 2021 to learn how Connext Drive enables autonomous and electric vehicles. Visit our virtual booth to see what a data-centric software approach means for the future and those who embrace it.

Register now for the post-CES February 9th webinar, Software is Paving the Way for the Future of Electric and Autonomous Vehicles.
