Latest Autosar adaptive platform supports full network binding of the DDS standard

By Nick Flaherty www.flaherty.co.uk

AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open Systems ARchitecture) has released the latest version of the Adaptive Platform that incorporates the embedded publish/subscribe Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard.

Release 18-10 supports a full network binding of DDS, allowing automotive manufacturers to implement an AUTOSAR Adaptive framework with DDS and develop highly autonomous systems, such as Level 4 and Level 5 autonomous vehicles.

RTI worked with the AUTOSAR Consortium on the implementation, as both the DDS and AUTOSAR standards contribute to a robust ecosystem for autonomous systems. DDS enables AUTOSAR to fully support highly autonomous systems with a production-ready communication framework that delivers the reliability, scalability and performance needed for these complex systems.

The AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform is a software standard designed to meet the increasing technology demands of new automotive applications. DDS is being adopted by Automotive Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) as a framework to solve complex requirements in Level 4 and Level 5 autonomous systems.

“RTI’s connectivity software is built on the DDS standard and provides a modern, data-centric architecture for autonomous systems. Auto manufacturers across the world rely on its standard-based, proven platform to streamline development through every stage from design to production,” said Bob Leigh, Senior Director of Autonomous Vehicles at RTI. “With DDS fully specified in AUTOSAR, the automotive industry can now use RTI Connext and DDS to develop high-performance applications, such as sensor fusion applications. They can also efficiently connect AUTOSAR-based applications to other systems using a robust, forward-looking IIoT architecture. The specification is now available and we look forward to continuing our work with AUTOSAR to drive the future of transportation.”

In the AUTOSAR Adaptive platform, the DDS components are optimised for end-to-end data sharing with little to no custom integration required. As a result, the DDS-based technology eliminates complex integration and security challenges for OEMs by providing a data-centric interoperable framework that supports all of the operating systems and processor architectures commonly used by OEMs and their suppliers. Auto manufacturers can also leverage other technologies outside of the AUTOSAR specification including cloud-based and back-end systems, as well as additional components that are common within the automotive industry, such as MatLab and Simulink as well as DSpace, Linux and QNX platforms.
