Open Real Time Ethernet

The Open Real-Time Ethernet (ORTE) is an implementation of the Real-Time Publish-Subscribe (RTPS) communication protocol. RTPS is a new application layer protocol targeted to real-time communication areas, and is built on the top of standard UDP stack. Since there are many TCP/IP stack implementations under many operating systems, and RTPS does not have any other special hardware or software requirements, it should be easily ported to many target platforms. Because it uses only UDP, it retains control of timing and reliability.
