RTI to Exhibit and Showcase Connext Drive at Virtual CES 2021

RTI Automotive Experts to Discuss the Latest Technology Advancements for Electric and Autonomous Vehicles

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Jan. 6, 2021 – Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the largest software framework provider for smart machines and real-world systems, today announced it will exhibit at the all-digital CES 2021, held January 11 – 14, 2021. The RTI virtual booth will showcase how RTI Connext Drive®, the automotive-grade connectivity solution for autonomous vehicles, is the proven software framework capable of supporting autonomous vehicle development from research to production.

Autonomous vehicles (AV), electric vehicles (EV) and a software-defined architecture are bringing monumental change to the Automotive industry. Electric vehicles are setting new standards for transportation, not simply because they are replacing the gas engine, but because they are primarily defined, and differentiated, by their software. RTI’s Automotive experts will discuss how AV and EV manufacturers are leveraging data-centric software in order to support faster innovation and build an architecture for scale. RTI's virtual booth will showcase what this approach means for the future of mobility.

RTI works with the most innovative automotive companies around the world – including Audi, Baidu Apollo, Xpeng Motors and more – who are building the next-generation of autonomous and electric vehicles. RTI Connext Drive is a complete solution that provides manufacturers with the software and tools they need to build highly autonomous vehicles, from development to production. Built on the open Data Distribution Service™ (DDS) standard, RTI's data-centric connectivity software is already proven in over 200 autonomous vehicle programs. Connext Drive is the only framework that is able to bridge the full spectrum of automotive ecosystems, including AUTOSAR Classic, AUTOSAR Adaptive and ROS2.

Additionally, on January 11, 2021 at CES the Indy Autonomous Challenge (IAC) will unveil their official race car. RTI is providing the IAC university teams with the software to design, simulate and run autonomous vehicles in the world's first high-speed, head-to-head autonomous race. The $1.5 million global university competition was organized by Energy Systems Network (ESN) and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in an effort to advance autonomous mobility technologies and enable the next generation of mobility.
