RTI Connext DDS CERT - Intro to Safety Certified DDS

RTI’s Connext DDS Cert is the first DDS implementation evaluated to DO-178C. It is available with a complete Level A Certification Package produced by Verocel, a leader in mission-critical software verification with a proven track record of DO-178 certifications. Find our more at



Read with query condition - .Net thread safety

I am using the C# .Net API for RTI Community DDS.

I am trying to query DDS on demand using a QueryCondition and read_w_condition() on a typed DataReader. I am trying to use the DataReader to access or take data I have previously published on demand from the application so that I can use DDS as a store of data. I am using multiple threads as I am servicing multiple interfaces.

Porting the communication layer (Micro edition)

Hello RTI team :)

We are considering the porting of RTI Connext Micro to an ARINC-653-like platform called XtratuM. It is an open source hypervisor designed for real-time embedded and high integrity systems. Although it does not follow a specific standard, its design is based on ARINC-653 so it provides the applications executing on top of it with time and space isolation. It allows the execution of different operating systems (e.g., a general purpose OS, a real-time OS, or an ARINC-653 OS).

The Robot Application Programming Interface Delegate (RAPID) is a set of software data structures and routines that simplify the process of communicating between multiple diverse robots and their command and control systems. RAPID is not intended to be an all-encompassing API for robot communication, but rather it’s a compatibility layer that permits tools and robotic assets to exchange data and information and allows operators to communicate with heterogeneous robots in a uniform way. RAPID is a compatibility layer that delegates information between robots that speak different languages.

The RAPID specification includes definitions and APIs for messages and services that support supervisory telerobotics operations over near-Earth time delay. RAPID is not a middleware specification, although safety and time-delay capabilities do imply requirements on implementing middleware systems. As currently implemented, the RAPID system can be considered a software reference implementation for remote operations.

Intersection Safety using Lidar and Stereo Vision sensors

Abstract: In this paper, we describe our approach for intersection safety developed in the scope of the European project INTERSAFE-2. A complete solution for the safety problem including the tasks of perception and risk assessment using on-board lidar and stereo-vision sensors will be presented and interesting results are shown.
