Twin Oaks Computing and The Laboratory for Advanced
Collaboration (LAC) at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de
Janeiro (PUC-Rio) are working together on an international project:
The goal of ContextNet is to get a large number of mobile devices
to gather, process, and share information. Users of portable
devices (e.g. Android smartphones), vehicles, or moveable gadgets
could use this technology to communicate information. These devices
would be able to "dynamically discover" each other and share
information: automatically "seeing" and "talking" with each
The portable devices could be on the same or different operating
systems and still communicate: say, some on Linux and others on
Windows, or some on Android phones and others on iPads, etc., or
some variation / combination of the above. The possibilities are
Working with the LAC for the first time, Twin Oaks Computing
supplied the University with CoreDX DDS: the communications
software they need to complete this project
CoreDX DDS is being used to build the backbone of the communication
infrastructure for the project, which will run via independent
users in diverse network domains. This infrastructure will
communicate with approximately 30,000-50,000+ mobile devices
simultaneously, each of them sending data every 30 seconds.
Currently the ContextNet team is testing the development of this
technology. Twin Oaks Computing, Inc. is looking forward to
continuing their collaboration with the LAC, advancing
communications technologies around the world.
CoreDX DDS is the leading Publish-Subscribe middleware available
for small-footprint and embedded systems. Founded in 2005 and
located in Castle Rock, Colorado, Twin Oaks Computing, Inc.
delivered the first version of CoreDX DDS in 2008. Twin Oaks
