RTI to Exhibit and Showcase Connext Drive, the Connectivity Framework Enabling Software-Defined Vehicles, at CES 2023

RTI Automotive Experts to Demo Vehicle Technology & Address the Main Challenges in Developing Next-Generation Vehicles

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Dec.13 , 2022– Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the largest software framework company for autonomous systems, will exhibit at CES 2023, held January 5 – 8, in Las Vegas. At booth #4975 in the LVCC West Hall, RTI will showcase Connext Drive®, the automotive-grade, safety-certified connectivity framework for software-defined vehicles. It enables flexibility in the software stack through an agile data-centric integration framework that allows architects to abstract from hardware and operating systems, prioritizing intelligent connectivity at the core of the vehicle. At the booth, RTI will integrate three demonstrations running across a multitude of leading hardware and software platforms that address the main challenges in developing next-generation vehicles: Zonal Architecture; High Performance Compute; and Telematics / Cloud Connectivity, all to accommodate the evolution towards the Software Defined Vehicle.

Connext Drive offers development teams a future-forward path, enabling software developers to rapidly add and update vehicle functionality by providing fast and efficient connectivity at the core of the vehicle, from ECUs to the cloud. In production and in vehicles around the world, Connext Drive supports safety certification up to ISO 26262 ASIL D.

Connext Drive is the only framework that is able to bridge the full spectrum of automotive ecosystems – including Data Distribution Service (DDS™), AUTOSAR Classic, AUTOSAR Adaptive and ROS2 – providing architects and system engineers with maximum flexibility in developing their full stack solution.

At CES, RTI has partnered with GuardKnox to integrate the power and functionality of Connext Drive with the GuardKnox SOA Framework. By running Connext natively on its SOA framework, RTI and GuardKnox are enabling next-generation zonal E/E architecture through a real-time, scalable, automotive solution that connects the entire system from the ECU domain to the backend. Visit the GuardKnox suite at the Westgate Resort, North Tower Suite #28-121, where the product demonstration will take place.

Additionally, on January 7, 2023, RTI technology will hit the racetrack again at the Indy Autonomous Challenge (IAC) at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Join us as RTI Connext paves the way in helping the Mitt-Pitt-RIT Waterloo team break records and achieve speeds of over 140 mph - fully autonomous, fully driverless.

At Booth #4975, RTI will provide hands-on demonstrations of how Connext Drive can enable the Software Defined Vehicle with its unique communication capabilities both in and off vehicle. The demo will seamlessly run on a range of leading automotive SoC platforms, RTOS and operating system environments. The demo station will include:

  • Zonal Architecture: This showcases two zones that solve connectivity challenges for the whole vehicle through scalability, flexibility and low latency with a path towards ISO26262 certification.
  • HPC / High Performance Compute: This demonstrates a highly-reliable interface for next gen E/E communications.
  • Telematics & Cloud Connectivity: View a range of telematics and cloud communication patterns over diverse network protocols including native DDS, Websockets and other protocols.
