Studio

Studio is a plugin based visualization node that provides access to all data from the PolySync bus. PolySync also provides a ton of useful plugins such as: a 3D visualization environment, message trace for quick system or node validation, the System Hierarchy for runtime diagnostics and real-time parameter get/set, and a video plugin for image data and primitive data overlay. These all allow you to easily visualize and validate the data currently being published to the PolySync bus.

Tutorials

The tutorials section is where you get to see and use PolySync concepts and tools in action, showing what the PolySync platform is capable of through practical use cases.

Configuration

There are numerous ways to configure a PolySync system. This section will provide you with articles that describe valid host and runtime node configurations, focusing on node configuration and network set up for single host and distributed systems.

Record / Replay

PolySync is the best at recording massive amounts of time synchronized data, and providing an identical replay environment. These articles detail the requirements to record and export data in a PolySync environment, and how to import the recorded session to another PolySync environment.

Development

Once you're familiar with the main concepts introduced in the Getting Started and Tutorials section, learn how to set up a PolySync development environment here. All developers should have links to these resources, or know the information by heart.

SDF Configurator

The SDF Configurator is used to define a PolySync runtime. A runtime consists of all hosts, ECUs, and nodes, PolySync software applications running on the host(s). All hosts have required meta-data, and each node defined in the runtime has specific supported parameters. The SDF Configurator is a convenient way to define hosts, nodes and define parameter values.
