In conjunction with Tech Days, we are hosting several free, half day, hands-on workshops.

  • Adelaide Workshops – Wednesday 27th March – Galleries 2&3, The Watson, 33 Warwick St, Walkerville

Please register using the form at the bottom of this page.





In this workshop, we will discuss and show demos of the following:
a) Scale your system: 

Interconnecting hundreds of applications on a network becomes more problematic as the time and resources require for discovery increases.  using Routing Service can be a natural way to decouple subsystems and divide and concur discovery issues.

b) Interconnect systems over a wide-area-network (WAN):

While applications using RTI Connext DDS can be configured to connect across most WAN and/or the internet, the burden of configuring every single application can be reduced by using Routing Service.  In addition, by using Routing Service, applications themselves do not need to deal with the performance and security differences of the WAN versus a LAN…Routing Service can serve as a secure gateway to external networks.

c) Integrate non-DDS devices and protocols: 

While DDS is the best protocol to serve as a core databus, most systems have components that use protocols other than DDS for connection.  To integrate those devices, a protocol conversion gateway must be created.  Routing Service is a great way to build such gateways, and several common standard protocols such as OPC-UA and MQTT are in development by RTI.

d) Connect DDS systems that were never designed to connect to each other:

Routing Service can be used in a DDS network to transform Topics from one data type to a completely different data type, to spit a Topic into multiple Topics, to merge multiple Topics into a single Topic, to add information to a Topic, to remove information from a Topic.  All of these transformations makes it feasible to integrate systems that use DDS but were designed at different times by different groups and cannot be changed but still need to work together.


Presenter: Dr Howard Wang (RTI)

Dr Howard Wang (RTI) has been with RTI since 1996 and is responsible for expanding the adoption of DDS in the Asia Pacific region. He is an expert in embedded real-time systems specialising in network communications and systems integration. Howard has consulted with the NASA Kennedy Space Center in helping to rewrite the launch and processing software for the Space Shuttle and next generation launch vehicles for the US space program. He holds a PhD and an MS in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Stanford University, as well as BSEs in Aerospace and Computer Engineering from the University of Michigan. Howard has authored several papers presented in international journals and conferences.

Time: 9.00 am
