AUTOSAR releases latest adaptive platform adopting the DDS Standard
Real-Time Innovations (RTI) announced that AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open Systems ARchitecture) has released the latest version of the Adaptive Platform, Release 18-03, which features the Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard. The AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform is a standardized software platform designed to meet the increasing technology demands of new automotive applications. For the first time, the Adaptive Platform supports the Object Management Group (OMG) DDS connectivity standard for mission-critical real-time systems, allowing the AUTOSAR standard to further meet the requirements of highly autonomous systems such as level 4 and level 5 autonomous vehicles.
“With AUTOSAR now including the DDS standard, a new technical market has been created within the automotive industry,” said Bob Leigh, senior market development director, autonomous systems at RTI. “As autonomous systems continue to evolve, there is a growing importance on the underlying architecture, safety, and security. At RTI we have extensive experience in working with customers that have some of the most demanding mission and safety-critical applications, and who have selected DDS as the backbone of their systems. Traditional car manufacturers and vendor ecosystem providers, who have embraced AUTOSAR, will now be able to use DDS to compete in this race for the future of transportation.”
AUTOSAR is a worldwide development partnership of car manufacturers, suppliers, and other leading companies in the electronics, semiconductor, and software industries. This latest revision of the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform integrates several new features into the open system architecture standard. The release defines a DDS communication binding for the Adaptive Platform Communication Management API and is the first in a series of releases that will add support for new functionality. Prior to this update, AUTOSAR applications were limited in terms of communications protocols and integrations. According to AUTOSAR, using the DDS standard, system architects can improve the evolvability of their designs, preparing all systems for future technical advancements. Additionally, DDS allows auto manufacturers to leverage other technologies outside of the AUTOSAR specification including connected and cloud-based technologies.
The RTI Connext databus is a software framework that shares information in real time, making applications work together as one integrated system. It connects across field, fog, and cloud.
