RTI Enables the World’s Intelligent Distributed Future

Our RTI Connext software framework makes it possible to build systems that combine advanced sensing, fast control, and AI algorithms.

  • Connext applies the concept called data centricity, based on the Data Distribution Service (DDS™) standard.
  • Instead of sending messages, a data-centric system makes all data available to every device and algorithm in local memory with controlled timing.
  • Autonomous systems need data centricity because AI algorithms require huge amounts of data with very specific delivery requirements.
  • Connext securely shares information in real time so distributed systems work together as one.

Our Mission…

  • To enable a new generation of intelligent distributed systems, boldly seeking to transform entire industries.
  • Particularly seeking applications that promote a sustainable, safe, green, and healthy planet.

Today, AI is restricted to the cloud.

RTI will let AI step out of the cloud.
