Automobile architectures are continually evolving, and this rate of change is accelerating with the introduction of advanced driver assist systems (ADAS) and autonomous capabilities. Unlike the era of single-function ECUs with point-to-point hardwired interconnects (sometimes numbering in the hundreds per vehicle), modern vehicle architecture is software-defined and able to take on a much larger set of tasks using fewer resources, resulting in vehicles that are lighter, safer and easier to build and upgrade.
To illustrate this trend, RTI presents an expanding set of examples that demonstrate the ease and flexibility of using RTI Connext Drive to create modern vehicle architectures that are:
- Scalable from entry-level driver assistance up to fully autonomous driving
- Expandable to include teleoperations, V2X, simulation, hardware acceleration, etc.
- Interoperable with AUTOSAR, ROS 2, CAN, and other automotive standards
- Reusable to easily adapt to different configurations, processors, operating systems, transports and programming languages — without having to re-engineer the applications
Furthermore, these examples get the full benefit of Connext Drive to meet your performance, reliability and safety certification needs.
