CES 2020: Aptiv selects RTI’s middleware for self-driving car data transfer

19 December 2019

Autonomous vehicle developer Aptiv will use Real-Time Innovations (RTI)’s RTI Connext DDS connectivity middleware as a tool to securely transfer data within its self-driving vehicles.

The companies will showcase the merging of the technologies at the upcoming CES 2020 being held in Las Vegas on Jan. 7-10.

Aptiv is working on Level 4 and Level 5 self-driving technologies for future commercialization, recently forming a $4 billion joint venture with Hyundai that will begin testing driverless systems in 2020 and aims to have production-ready autonomous platform for robotaxis by 2022.

Aptiv also recently launched a fleet of 30 autonomous vehicles in Las Vegas on the Lyft network for ride-hailing.

The Connext DDS middleware is a standards-based framework that supports self-driving cars from development to production. The technology offers secure connectivity for exchanging and storing data that provides an open platform to make software module integrations smoother, the company said.
