Khronos is celebrating it's 15th Anniversary this year, and what a year it's turning out to be. BOFs include OpenVX & OpenCL, OpenCL, SYCL & SPIR-V, WebGL and glTF and Vulkan, OpenGL, OpenGL ES.    Read More

Customizing of 3D Paper Models Using WebGL

Four years ago we presented a prototype for creating custom 3D paper models using OpenGL. This time we present a new version developed using WebGL. Besides several options to custom the paper model like surface color, edge color and thickness, or images used as stickers, the user can also make new models using a simple revolution surface editor. This prototype still follows a client-server model. The server starts to work when the user requests the PDF file, computing a high quality paper model using OpenGL for multisampling, texture filtering and off-screen rendering.   Read More

Renesas ADAS Starter Kit accelerates vision-based ADAS application development with OpenGL ES

Renesas Electronics Corporation introduced the ADAS Starter Kit based on Renesas’ high-end R-Car H2 System on Chip (SoC) and developed to help simplify and speed the development of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) applications. The new ADAS Starter Kit is capable of delivering more than 25,000 DMIPS and provides state-of-the-art 3D graphics capabilities and powerful vision processing cores. The R-Car H2 is powered by the ARM Cortex A-15 quad-core configuration running an additional ARM Cortex A-7 quad-core. It also features the Imagination Technologies PowerVR Series6 G6400 GPU which supports both OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenGL ES 3.0.   Read More
