SUNNYVALE, Calif. December 23, 2019 Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity company, today announced it will exhibit at CES 2020 in Las Vegas, January 7-10. The RTI booth will feature a drivable vehicle simulation, the Connext Drive™ demo, showcasing RTI’s complete data connectivity framework for autonomous vehicle development. Based on the Data Distribution Service™ (DDS) Standard, Connext Drive integrates the components needed to build an autonomous vehicle and gives architects and developers a robust, dynamic and distributed software framework. RTI customers Aptiv and Xpeng Motors will also be featured in the RTI booth to showcase how Connext DDS is the software framework capable of supporting autonomous vehicle development from research to production.

The RTI booth will include a theater and stage with automotive presentations by experts from dSPACE GmbH, Green Hills, Infineon, Lynx Software, MathWorks, Mentor, Mocana, QNX, Wind River and Xilinx, among others. RTI will also host an industry panel at the booth, featuring Stan Schneider, CEO at RTI, KT Neumann, former CEO at Continental, Opel and Volkswagen, Jan Becker, CEO, President and Co-Founder at Apex.AI, and Bryn Balcombe, Chief Strategy Officer at Roborace.

Demo Description:

The Connext Drive demo at the RTI booth is a drivable vehicle simulation that will feature RTI’s complete data connectivity framework for autonomous vehicle development and highlight leading technology from several partners. The demo will show Connext Drive combining common platforms including ROS and AUTOSAR as well as technologies from NVIDIA, Infineon, Elektrobit, UnrealEngine (CARLA) and MathWorks. Connext Drive is an open, interoperable framework that works with other technologies, providing OEMs with maximum flexibility when developing their autonomous systems.

"Reliable connectivity is essential to enable the next generation of vehicles to achieve higher levels of autonomy," said Ritesh Tyagi, Head of the Automotive Silicon Valley Innovation Center (SVIC) at Infineon. "As a leading supplier of real-time AURIX™ microcontrollers for automotive systems, Infineon recognizes the benefits of RTI’s Connext Drive solution as a framework to complement proven standards such as AUTOSAR, as well as facilitate the development of robust connected vehicle systems."

"EB has been a long-time advocate for interoperability, and we support the open approach that RTI is taking with its new Connext Drive framework," said Martin Schleicher, Executive Vice President, Business Management, Elektrobit. "We are pleased to contribute our AUTOSAR expertise and software to the Connext Drive demonstration at CES. The RTI demo at CES includes Elektrobit’s EB tresos, an industry-leading implementation of AUTOSAR-compliant basic software for automotive electronic control units (ECUs)."
