RTI Connext DDS provides the connectivity framework for real-time control and monitoring of large vehicle and machine control systems, including mining equipment, mobile factory machines and autonomous exploration vehicles. Designed for mission-critical Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) environments, Connext DDS offers modular development and easy integration of large systems as well as secure and distributed SCADA, and better monitoring through cloud-based analysis and real-time feedback to the operational system.
Connext DDS delivers critical real-time data to intelligent control algorithms to optimize machine precision, predict and prevent failures, and improve safety. It provides low latency, high throughput, reliable and secure data availability from sensors to a local controller, as well as to fog and cloud-based analytics.
Connext DDS is highly resilient with no single point of failure. It supports redundant publishers and subscribers, fast failover and redundant networks.
Connext DDS Routing Service intelligently bridges data across multiple networks, subsystems and systems. It can isolate different systems for safety purposes or to accommodate disparate bandwidth capabilities. For example, it can reduce the amount of data forwarded from a high-bandwidth in-vehicle network to a cloud-based monitoring service, which may be connected over a public wireless network. Routing Service only forwards required data to minimize network overhead.
Connext DDS is well suited to applications with stringent functional safety requirements. It is certifiable to ISO-26262 ASIL D and IEC 61508 SIL 3. Because software modules integrated via Connext DDS are loosely-coupled and independent of the implementation of other modules, its use also significantly reduces recertification effort when components are added or changed.
