More Info on Real-Time Innovations (RTI)

In the next 10 years, cars will safely drive themselves, smart networked medical devices will improve patient care, defense systems will protect with lower cost and error, and power systems will better use renewables. Real-Time Innovations (RTI) supplies the world’s number one software framework for autonomy, with over 1,800 designs. We lead the transition to intelligent real-world systems, the most important technology trend for the next decade and beyond.

Our RTI Connext® software framework makes it possible to design and deploy intelligent real-world systems in demanding environments. Connext implements a new concept called data centricity, based on the Data Distribution ServiceTM (DDS) standard. Instead of sending messages, a data-centric system makes all data available to every device and algorithm in local memory with controlled timing. It is especially useful for autonomous systems, because artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms often require huge amounts of data with very specific delivery requirements. Connext securely shares information in real time so distributed systems can work together as one.

Our mission is to enable a new generation of intelligent distributed systems, boldly seeking to transform entire industries. We particularly seek applications that promote a sustainable, safe, green and healthy planet. Today, AI is restricted to the cloud. RTI will let AI step out of the cloud. 

RTI enables the world’s intelligent distributed future.
