  • Optimizing Model-Based Design using QoS and DDS Recorded: May 25 2021 45 mins
    Mark McBroom, AE Manager, MathWorks; Shwetha Patil, DDS Blockset PM Manager, MathWorks & Paul Schmitt, FAE, RTI
    INTRODUCING MATHWORKS DDS BLOCKSET WITH RTI CONNEXT DDS

    Complex distributed systems require tight communication among a diverse set of intelligent data-driven apps and devices. This adds complexity into the model and simulation stage, as engineers work to test, rework, move and re-test before development starts. In order to develop systems that work as designed, data flows need to be built into the model from the earliest stages.
    The Data Distribution Service™ (DDS) databus provides the data backbone to the system. In the simulation phase, it enables the system to be accurately modeled with the same real-world inputs and outputs in real-world conditions through Quality of Service (QoS) configurable parameters.
    Now, integrating DDS data into modeling and simulation work is easy and automatic. The MathWorks DDS Blockset application is fully integrated with the RTI Connext® DDS connectivity framework, providing engineers with DDS custom blocks to model DDS communication between Simulink and pure DDS applications. System designers and application developers can incorporate Connext into their Simulink designs as virtual components, ready to connect to other Simulink and non-Simulink components through the DDS databus. Users can generate code from Simulink models and deploy their models integrated with Connext DDS.
    In this webinar, you will learn how to model and simulate applications that use DDS and Quality of Service (QoS) policies with the new DDS Blockset application from MathWorks. The session will include a demonstration of DDS Blockset with Connext and audience Q&A.

  • Securing Autonomous Systems While Optimizing Performance Recorded: Apr 22 2021 36 mins
    Raul Gomez, Senior Product Manager for Security, RTI
    The open Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard has been widely adopted for complex and demanding autonomous systems that require low-latency, highly reliable, and scalable data communications, such as autonomous cars, medical robotics and unmanned aircraft.

    Securing these systems requires careful architecting. Not all system components can be trusted at the same level and, so, not all data flows will present the same security requirements. Homogeneously applying the highest security functions to the entire system can have a severe impact on in performance.

    RTI Connext® DDS Secure is a connectivity framework that enables system architects to build secure and scalable systems of systems. Built on the Connext databus, and fully compliant with the OMG® DDS Security Specification, Connext DDS Secure provides the flexibility to implement capabilities required by their systems, such as authentication, encryption and access control, in a pluggable manner.

  • Achieving the Communication Requirements of RADAR Systems with Connext DDS Recorded: Feb 18 2021 59 mins
    Mark Swick, RTI Systems Architect
    Radar systems must be designed to keep up with a rapidly changing threat environment, adapt to new technologies, and reflect the realities of leaner development budgets. In this webinar, learn why radar systems developers are employing data-centric architectures implemented with standards-based communications technologies to meet these challenging requirements.

    The webinar will elaborate on concepts that are widely used for constructing scalable, open radar systems:

    - Leveraging modular, data-oriented design patterns to implement radar services. Radars, and sensors in general, share common architectural and design patterns. This lends itself to the use, and re-use, of common components, or services across multiple sensor implementations.

    - Open, language-independent data models and protocols enable reusability and reduce life-cycle costs. Implementation of common services using open-systems architecture precepts expands the choices for system integrators in constructing radar and sensor systems. This approach allows the selection of best-in-class components in the initial development phase while enabling cost-effective replacement of end-of-life components, avoiding major redesign over the system lifecycle.

    - The combination of data-centric architectures, open data models, and proven open standards-based communication infrastructure for radar and other sensor systems offer greatly-improved flexibility, reduced risk, and lower life cycle costs.

  • Designing NGVA Systems for Real-Time Data Flow with DDS and TSN Recorded: Jan 20 2021 55 mins
    Fernando Garcia, Principal Software Engineer, RTI & Alicia Alonso, Business Development Manager, SoC-e
    For a new generation of military vehicles, the NATO Generic Vehicle Architecture (NGVA) provides a highly reliable approach to platform design and integration. But to take it to the next level and achieve important new strategic imperatives such as optimizing ground missions, NGVA systems demand a key capability: continuous access to new, real-time data that can also be delivered over remote, long-distant terrain.

    Two software standards play an important role in enabling real-time data flows in the NGVA vehicle architecture. Firstly, Data Distribution ServiceTM (DDS) sits close to the application and provides an open framework to enable determinism, reliability, scalability and availability. The second part of the solution is Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN), which offers a lower-level network technology enabling deterministic messaging over standard Ethernet. Together, they provide standard data models that enable deterministic communications in NGVA systems using commercially-available technologies. The result is a simplified network structure that creates significant performance improvement by enforcing real-time Quality of Service (QoS) for critical traffic flows.

    Join RTI and SoC-e to learn how DDS and TSN work in NGVA architectures in a fast-paced, 30-minute webinar with Q&A. We’ll review key aspects of NGVA, including:

  • Autonomy Beyond The Car Recorded: Sep 30 2020 30 mins
    Dr. Stan Schneider, CEO, Real-Time Innovations (RTI)
    Robocars will make life better and more efficient. But autonomous vehicles (AVs) that do everything drivers can do are still years or even decades away. And since operation with nobody in the car is critical for economic viability, we need a way to help the AV with “corner cases”. The best way to enable AVs sooner is to use human operators to suggest strategies when the vehicle gets stuck. That requires vehicle fleets to have control rooms. This session will examine the potential and challenge of practical teleoperation, including combining assistance strategies, control-center design, cloud computing, and 5G connectivity. It will also consider the architecture required to connect in-vehicle control and remote oversight. These systems should not be designed independently. AVs need a consistent architecture for the vehicle, control center, and cloud.
