As more and more electronics systems in embedded systems become defined by complex software, the need for a robust, real-time and interoperable communication framework between software components grows. For data-hungry applications such as autonomous vehicles, safety and security are crucial requirements. The Connext DDS connectivity framework from RTI enables applications running on the INTEGRITY RTOS to communicate across systems both within the vehicle and outside the vehicle, while also using the DDS standard to seamlessly interoperate with other important automotive environments such as ROS2, AUTOSAR Classic and AUTOSAR Adaptive. These capabilities further enhance INTEGRITY as the safe and secure run-time platform for autonomous vehicle projects, spanning research pilot programs to high-volume production.

"We're pleased to be working with Green Hills," said David Barnett, vice president of products and markets, RTI. "RTI Connext Drive builds on proven technology already used in over 200 autonomous vehicle programs around the world, as well as over 1,300 other demanding, real-time, intelligent distributed systems. Using Connext DDS with INTEGRITY provides our customers with a complete solution for their autonomous vehicle development environments and will help OEMs and suppliers accelerate their time to production."

"Connext Drive is a key addition to our automotive technology partner ecosystem," said Dan Mender, vice president of business development, Green Hills Software. "RTI's connectivity products and experience combined with the safe and secure INTEGRITY foundation which is successfully deployed in over 100 million vehicles globally, offers next-generation vehicle electronic designs the advanced, high performance connectivity required to seamlessly communicate with a diverse range of vehicle domains using proven, automotive-grade solutions."
