NVIDIA Blog: Using Vulkan SC for Safety-Critical Graphics and Real-time GPU Processing

GPU-accelerated processing is vital to many automotive and embedded systems. Safety-critical and real-time applications have different requirements and deployment priorities than consumer applications, but they often are developed using GPU APIs that have been primarily designed for use in games.

Vulkan SC (Safety Critical) is a newly released open standard to streamline the use of GPUs in markets where functional safety and hitch-free performance are essential.

NVIDIA helped lead the creation of the Vulkan SC 1.0 API and is now shipping production drivers on its NVIDIA DRIVE and NVIDIA Jetson platforms.
