A Foundation for Autonomy – New Automotive Standards Accelerate Development of Autonomous Vehicles
Thursday, June 6, 2019 - 03:00 PM to 04:00 PM (EST)



The race for connected and autonomous vehicles is accelerating technology innovation. To fully leverage this innovation, a standards-based communications foundation must exist to support the immense amount of data that will be passed between applications and sensors, while also enabling safe and secure operations. Historically, the adoption of standards has resulted in rapid and profound acceleration of technology. The adoption of CAN and AUTOSAR are examples of standards that have enabled the advancement of many conveniences, luxury and safety features in low-end vehicles. What standard is positioned to do the same for autonomy?

The automotive industry is moving towards a common architecture framework that can meet the performance, safety and security requirements necessary for Level 4 and Level 5 Autonomy. Of the dozens of platforms and architectures being developed for autonomous vehicles, there are 3-4 basic designs – ROS2, Adaptive AUTOSAR, Databus, and the Apollo framework – each with many variants that address specific market challenges. Nearly all of them are based on the Data Distribution Service (DDS) open standard. DDS is an extremely flexible connectivity framework that is already deployed in thousands of autonomous systems spanning industries such as transportation, smart energy, aerospace, defense, training, simulation, and healthcare. DDS is designed for mission-critical applications with safety and security demands that need robust, real-time performance, and a QoS-aware communication foundation to model data flows, standard security, type evolution and integration with other connectivity standards.

What you will learn:

Attend this webinar to learn best practices for developing a future-proof platform for autonomous vehicles. In addition, we will introduce the concept of data centricity and explain how to leverage a data-centric architecture to enable next-generation collaborative, connected, safe and secure systems. RTI is a leader in enabling autonomous vehicles via the data-centric DDS Databus. Based on RTI’s experience with 1300+ mission-critical applications, we will explore how applying modern embedded design and architecture principles can enable robust, reliable, safe and secure autonomous vehicles.
