In a recent announcement, ITTIA and Real-Time Innovations (RTI) have made public a partnership to offer a complete software solution for real-time data distribution, long-term data storage and on-demand queries. ITTIA enables developers to build intelligent devices with built-in data analysis capability. Through this partnership with RTI, the principle provider of connectivity software for Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) systems, device developers benefit from an innovative solution for data connectivity and management.
ITTIA DB SQL empowers devices to store, manage and analyze data using a powerful relational data management engine that follows industry guidelines and standards. With the Structured Query Language, SQL, manufacturers of embedded systems and devices have access to a data management platform that is both familiar and offers great performance, efficient concurrency and robust data types.
“We are committed to and excited about our partnership with RTI, the number one leader in DDS software and solutions,” said Sasan Montaseri, president and founder, ITTIA. “The combination of software and expertise at both companies offers manufactures a reliable platform to collect, store, manage, analyze and distribute data to other devices and the cloud.”
RTI Connext DDS software distributes real-time data through high-level APIs that comply with the Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard. Like ITTIA DB SQL, Connext DDS is cross-platform with support for all major programming languages and operating systems. Automatic discovery connects devices over a reliable peer-to-peer protocol for which no message broker or server is required.
With this integration, RTI Connext DDS record data streams into a local ITTIA DB SQL database. This allows devices to analyze historical information while new data is continuously added in the background. Database tables are automatically created for each topic of data being sent with RTI Connext DDS, enabling SQL queries to be designed and tested without developing any new source code. Software developers then use a variety of Graphical User Interface (GUI) frameworks, SQL tools, C/C++ interfaces and scripting languages to access data stored on the device.
“The integration of RTI Connext DDS and ITTIA DB SQL gives device developers a turnkey solution for distributing and managing real-time data, including raw sensor and fused data,” said David Barnett, VP, products and markets, RTI. “Connext DDS and ITTIA DB SQL are very complementary. Both solutions are optimized for high-performance, well-suited to resource-constrained embedded systems and standards compliant.”
