Überblick und Zusammenfassungen:
For large-scale distributed systems, it can be a challenge to integrate a large number of underlying technologies, platforms, and protocols. Consider underwater drones, remotely-accessible medical devices, space systems, and construction and mining robots. Often these systems include resource-constrained devices with strict power and memory footprint requirements, limiting their ability to perform advanced behavior or decision making, as well as limiting their connectivity for remote operators to supervise and intervene in difficult scenarios. This communication may span local, wide area, public and private networks, with different configurations. To complicate matters further, some of these communications must be secured, further impacting the footprint and system performance.
Two recent developments are now helping to address these challenges. First, the DDS-XRCE protocol, which was adopted as an open standard by the Object Management Group®in 2020, and leverages the benefits of DDS for communication with small embedded devices. Second, to support seamless, high performance connectivity over heterogeneous networks, RTI has developed the Real-Time WAN Transport as a part of Connext DDS, which is fully compatible with the fine-grained security features of the DDS standard.
Together, they can be leveraged to implement a system of systems known as a Layered Databus Architecture, with flexible communications and scalability from edge-to-edge and edge-to-cloud. These new developments enable network connections to change as the system moves, delivering seamless connectivity without reconnecting, security without renegotiating, and reliability without losing information. Thus, remote operations can continue in real time without interruption.
