I am happy to announce the availability of eProsima Safe DDS, a new implementation of DDS developed from zero following the ISO 26262 standard.
During the past years, many of our customers and users have asked for two particular features:
ISO 26262 certification for automotive applications.
a more lightweight DDS implementation, targeting embedded systems with low resources and real-time operating systems such as FreeRTOS.
Safe DDS is the answer to these requirements, and it has been a considerable effort since we started the project around two years ago. The ISO 26262 standard requires an exigent development process, a lot of documentation, 100% testing coverage, many iterations with certification consulting companies… etc.
Currently, Safe DDS is already being used by some of our customers in professional applications, some of them related to ROS2, so it is also good news for the ROS2 community.
We will publish more information about this product in the following weeks.
Yes, but you have to use just a subset of the DDS standard. Safe DDS is a lightweight implementation of DDS and we don’t implement the whole set of DDS specifications, as in other Certified DDS implementations.
