OpenSplice DDS provides high performance, real-time data sharing
for leading edge simulation environments
Star Trek has provided an enormous complement of technologies that have amazed audiences for decades. An important technology that served multiple purposes was the holodeck. The holodeck was used as a data analysis environment (provided 3-D visualization of data/models/simulations), a communications device (created 3-D representation of the beings that were being communicated with), a training tool (provided crew members with simulated environments to train for missions), an engineering design tool (allowed crew members to create and manipulate 3-D models of objects piece by piece before they were fabricated), and as a recreation environment (simulated locations crew members could visit).
Although a holodeck developed using today's technologies would not provide the same range and fidelity of capabilities as those provided by a Star Trek holodeck, the technologies available today would still allow the creation of a system that would still be tremendously beneficial.
As part of the project,
OpenSplice DDS is the leading (commercial and Open Source) implementation of the Object Management Group™'s (OMG™) Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-Time Systems standard. OpenSplice DDS has been designed to optimally address the real-time information distribution and management challenges posed by high performance real-time data-processing systems.
“OpenSplice was evaluated and selected for this Project because of its easy to use API, cross platform compatibility, high performance, and a rich suite of functionality,” said
“This project has the potential of changing the way people interact with machines, visualize data and work together,” said
