SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 6, 2016) -  Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity platform company, today announced it is hosting a complimentary webinar, "How to Design Distributed Robotic Control Systems," in partnership with Energrid, an engineering firm providing robotics, machine vision and remote control software.

A growing number of advanced robotics applications require tight coordination of multiple systems and devices. Sensors, actuators, manipulators and mobile platforms all must communicate with each other to meet the demanding requirements of today's emerging robotics applications.

This pair of industry experts will discuss how the Data-Distribution Service™ (DDS™) standard can be used to enable complex robotics applications. Dr. Edwin de Jong, Vice President of Sales at RTI, and Doug Barker, Senior Robotic Systems Engineer at Energid, will examine a wide range of common challenges of 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. They will also discuss real-world use cases that cover applications in robotic oil drilling (with some of the world's largest robots), space exploration (rover simulations for NASA) and advanced manipulation (with lightweight dexterous tabletop robots).
