GVA and DDS: Lowering Cost and Driving Innovation in Land Vehicle Platforms

In 2010, the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) released the first version of their General Vehicle Architecture standard (Def Stan 23-009), more widely known as GVA. The GVA standard defined a set of requirements for the development of military vehicles based on a single cohesive and logically connected architecture. The motivation was to reduce risk and costs through the entire vehicle life cycle, while at the same time improving equipment capability through better integration and scalability.

Today, the UK MoD mandates the use of the GVA standard for all future land vehicle platforms and upgrade programmes. The GVA approach is currently also being followed by many other nations, as well by NATO through its NGVA programme.

The success of GVA is a fine example of the benefit of adopting open standards. And one of the most critical open standards specified in GVA is Data Distribution ServiceTM (DDS), which is used as the underlying software framework for vehicle development. In turn, the data model that underpins DDS is itself woven into the GVA solution through the Land Data Model, which the MoD defines and maintains.

In this webinar, we will review key aspects of the GVA and how it drives innovation, with a focus on the software architecture. Among other topics, we will cover:

- An overview of General Vehicle Architecture
- The structure of the underlying the data model (Land Data Model)
- How GVA uses DDS as the foundation of a standard-based solution
- The importance and benefits of data-centricity in the GVA approach

  • Architecting your System with Connext DDS: 3. How to Simplify SOA Development Jun 25 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Fernando Garcia, Principal Software Engineer, RTI
    The design and development of distributed systems is challenging. Currently there are multiple ongoing efforts that aim to simplify development by providing reusable patterns and architectures that can be applied across different industries.

    RTI ConnextⓇ DDS provides a holistic solution for distributing data that follows, at its core, a data-centric publish-subscribe communication model. This communication pattern is extremely flexible and is often considered a super pattern upon which many well-known patterns, such as request-reply and queuing, can be constructed. In this Tech Talk, we explain how to implement Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) using standard Data Distribution ServiceTM (DDS) features. In particular, we will demonstrate how to leverage mechanisms defined in the OMG® Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) Over DDS specification to create DDS Services, and will show how to leverage RTI Connext Request-Reply APIs to use them. As part of the presentation, we'll take a sneak peek into some of the upcoming features in Connext DDS that aim to simplify the development of SOA and perform a live demonstration that showcases a few examples of these applications.

    Attend this Tech Talk to learn:

    - Specific Connext DDS features that can simplify the implementation of SOA
    - How Connext DDS helps developers leverage the OMG’s RPC Over DDS specification to create DDS Services
    - How to establish flexible communication patterns such as request-reply and queuing

  • How Do You Future-Proof Electric Vehicle Connectivity? Jun 16 2020 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Sara Granados Cabeza, PhD., Principal Field Application Engineer, RTI
    When you design your next-generation electric vehicle (EV) architecture, there’s a strong drive to create something that will last for at least 10-20 years. For that, you need to understand the market, make an educated guess on what’s going to be needed in the near (and not so near) future, and hope everything goes as expected. But what if the market changes? What if unexpected events take development off course? Will you be able to shift gears and get your system back on the right track?

    Being prepared for the unexpected is what makes us evolve, and the connectivity that supports your EV development efforts should follow the same rule. In safety-critical systems, you need to design your connectivity so that new functionality can be added without affecting the current system. Even in naturally static systems such as certified vehicles, choosing the right connectivity technology gives you the ability to adapt to change and stay ahead of the curve as requirements evolve.

    In this webinar, we will review some of the key attributes of a next-generation electrical and electronic vehicle architecture that is well prepared to meet tomorrow’s needs:

    - Flexible architecture to adapt to changing requirements
    - Extensible data model to accept new functionality
    - Security as needed depending on your connectivity needs
    - Easy integration with backend and existing technologies

Concepts to be discussed include:

    - Data at Rest versus Data in Motion
    - Uniqueness of data
    - Conceptual, Logical, Platform levels of Data Modeling
    - “On the Wire” considerations
    - Interoperability

    Attendees will understand that data and its associated behavior are the keys to realizing the benefits of RTI Connext and DDS.
  • Architecting your System with Connext DDS: 1.Designing a Layered Databus System Recorded: Apr 30 2020 57 mins
    John Patchin, Senior Applications Engineer, RTI
    Many medical, IIoT, and industrial systems require sharing of data across networks, across different transport protocols, or among devices. These systems often require capabilities such as fault-tolerance, scalability, low-latency, and sub-system isolation. DDS enables these types of applications by providing a data-centric, highly scalable and efficient databus architecture. Furthermore, layering databuses has many benefits, including scalability, isolation, and redundancy.

    However, key questions must be answered when designing a layered databus system:
    · What are some recommended approaches for defining the layers?
    · How are the layers connected?
    · What effects does layering have on performance?
    · What are the different approaches to implementing a layered databus?

    This presentation will provide an overview of these topics and offer insights and recommendations for designing your own DDS-based systems.
  • Integrating DDS Into the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform Recorded: Feb 12 2020 59 mins
    Fernando Garcia, Principal Software Engineer at RTI and Emilio Guijarro Automotive Applications Engineer at RTI
    The AUTOSAR Consortium has recently adopted Data Distribution ServiceTM (DDS) as a connectivity standard for its next-generation Adaptive Platform. In combination with the ara::com API, DDS enables Adaptive applications to achieve reliable, scalable and secure communications leveraging a rich set of Quality of Service (QoS) policies, while adhering to the semantics of ara::com's service-oriented architecture.

    In this webinar, we’ll explore the integration of DDS into the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform. We’ll highlight the most salient use cases for the combination of DDS and AUTOSAR Adaptive. Also, we’ll focus on RTI's reference implementation of the DDS network binding for the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform Demonstrator, and illustrate how it can be easily integrated with the RTI Connext ecosystem. Lastly, we’ll also address some of the ongoing efforts to integrate DDS into the AUTOSAR Classic Platform.

  • Using XML Application Creation to simplify development in RTI Connext DDS Micro Recorded: Sep 25 2019 45 mins
    Valentin Perez - Software Engineer at RTI and Francisco M. Merino - Senior Software Engineer at RTI
    XML-Based Application Creation is a mechanism to simplify and accelerate the development and programming of Connext DDS applications. User systems can be easily prototyped on a PC using Connext DDS Pro and quickly migrated to the final hardware. This can be useful in many situations. For example, autonomous vehicle developers using Connext DDS Micro 3.0.0 have a direct path to ASIL D safety-certified systems.

    Connext DDS supports the use of XML for the complete system definition. This includes not only the definition of the data types and Quality of Service (QoS) settings, but also the definition of the Topics, DomainParticipants, and all the Entities they contain (Publishers, Subscribers, DataWriters and DataReaders). XML-Based Application Creation is already supported by Connext DDS Professional.

    Starting with RTI Connext DDS 6.0.0, XML-Based Application Creation can also be used to configure Connext DDS Micro applications through a utility called RTI Micro Application Generator (MAG). MAG generates source code from an XML configuration file that will be used to create DDS entities and registers all the components needed for a Connext DDS Micro-based application.

    Watch this webinar for a live demonstration and to learn:

    - The benefits of using XML to define your Connext DDS application
    - Requirements to work with XML Application Creation
    - XML Application Creation differences in Connext DDS Micro and Professional and how to migrate from Connext DDS Pro XML Application Creation to Connext DDS Micro XML Application Generator.
    - What is Micro Application Generator (MAG) and how to use it.
