Implement Teleoperation in Widely Distributed Systems

A key benefit of autonomous systems is that a single operator can efficiently control multiple robots, vehicles or other machines, regardless of proximity. This is particularly valuable when devices are mobile, or deployed in inaccessible or inhospitable locations.

Until now, supporting wide-area teleoperations has been very time-consuming and costly. Unlike systems deployed only on local networks, developers have had to accommodate the lower quality of wide area communication, the constraints and complexity of public infrastructure, and disruptions caused by roaming. Each deployment may also require customization for its specific network topology and service providers.

Connext Anywhere, based on the DDS standard, is the first software framework to address these challenges. It allows development of modular applications that are easy to deploy over diverse network types, configure for deployment-specific environments, and upgrade to add capabilities and take advantage of new technologies such as 5G. This accelerates your time-to-market while maximizing your long-term agility and competitiveness.


Features

Network-Agnostic DDS-Compliant APIs

Develop modular systems you can easily deploy over disparate transports—from shared memory to LANs to WANs—without source code changes. Quickly support deployment-specific networking environments and emerging technologies such as 5G when available.

Real-Time WAN Transport

Achieve low latency and high throughput over mobile and wide area networks, without custom development. RTI’s UDP-based protocol delivers data reliably over unreliable connections and even when switching networks. Built-in lossless data compression further maximizes effective throughput.

Cloud Discovery Service

Minimize deployment-specific configuration and maximize scalability. The service allows applications to dynamically discover each other and establish efficient peer-to-peer communication on networks without multicast and with Network Address Translation (NAT), including public networks and clouds.

Designed for Mission-Critical Real-Time

Build safe and secure systems. Connext notifies applications if the network doesn’t satisfy their Quality of Service (QoS) requirements, so they can take remediating action. Fine-grained security controls minimize overhead while satisfying authorization, authentication and privacy needs.
