RTI Presents "Space Rovers and Surgical Robots: System Architecture Lessons From Mars" Complimentary Webinar

Dr. Edwin de Jong Shares Details and Strategies for Implementation of the Data Distribution Service (DDS) Standard in Robotic Operating Systems

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - May 3, 2016) - Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity platform company, today announced it is hosting a complimentary webinar, "Space Rovers and Surgical Robots: System Architecture Lessons from Mars."

What do Mars exploration and Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery (MIRS) have in common? In some ways, the technology and communication requirements couldn't be more different.

Dr. Edwin de Jong, Vice President of Sales at RTI, will examine a wide range of challenges for designing modern robotic systems, based on real-life lessons learned from NASA's Human Robotic Systems project and MIRO Lab, an advanced robotic assistance research laboratory. Dr. de Jong will also discuss why Robot Operating System (ROS) 2.0 and robotic systems like NASA's and MIRO Lab's chose to implement a data-centric architecture using Data Distribution Service (DDS), a communication protocol standard for real-time and embedded systems.

Dr. de Jong brings more than 20 years of experience in the software industry. He is one of the pioneers in the development of large-scale, real-time, publish-subscribe middleware that is now revolutionizing the Internet of Things. Dr. de Jong joined RTI in 2005 following RTI's acquisition of 4TEC, a company he co-founded in 2002 and led as CEO.
