CoreAVI's software solution for Safety Critical Environments
CoreAVI released their Safe AI and Computer Vision Solution including its newest product, VkCoreVX™ SC, a safety critical implementation of Khronos’ OpenVX™1.3 API. CoreAVI’s Safe AI and Computer Vision Solution provides a flexible framework for computer vision, signal processing, and neural network inferencing while achieving the most stringent levels of safety certification.
Application developers can now deploy object detection and tracking algorithms based on a safety certifiable framework.
VkCoreVX SC provides a feature set for implementing and deploying convolutional neural networks, supporting vector machines, gaussian filtering, optical flow, and much more. It is built on top of CoreAVI’s safety critical Vulkan® SC implementation (VkCore® SC), which provides both graphics and compute capabilities within the same safety critical framework. This means that visualizing compute workloads, which is needed in augmented vision systems, autonomous systems, or degraded visual environments, can now for the first time be done from within a safety critical API with a deterministic runtime-state-management.
In addition to the VkCore SC graphics and compute driver, the complete Safe AI and Computer Vision Solution also includes CoreAVI’s ComputeCore™ compute libraries to enable safety critical implementation of BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms) and FFTs (Fast Fourier Transform).
The software stack facilitates the transition to safety certifiable Vulkan compute from commercial OpenCL®, CUDA®, and OpenCV solutions.
- It is designed from the ground up for real time and safety certification
- contains no open source components
- no 3rd party software.
The Safe AI and Computer Vision Solution is available with CertCore™ 26262 including ISO 26262 Accredited Safety Assessment Certificate ASIL D and CertCore™ 178 (DO-178C / ED-12C Avionics) DAL A safety certification package.
Product is based on a published Khronos Specification and is expected to pass the Khronos Conformance Process. Current conformance status can be found at www.khronos.org/conformance.
