OpenGL Graphics Drivers in Safety Critical Environments: Fact, Fiction and Future - Rick Tewell, Versilicon Holdings

Consumers are increasingly reliant on screens in cars to deliver critical information to the driver and, of course, entertainment choices and options. In most cases proprietary GPUs and software power these systems, which can be deemed to be “safety critical” and rise to the level of governance ISO 26262 standards and/or ASIL-B. Automotive OEMs and Tier Ones devote large efforts to insure that their instrument clusters and infotainment systems are as “crash-proof” as possible. Given increasing level of sophistication of these systems especially in the area of graphics, a better solution is necessary.

We present a proposal to provide the market with a production grade OpenGL safety critical driver solution that is fully open source and can be adapted for any modern era complex 3D GPU. The first public deployment of this driver will be adapted into Automotive Grade Linux.
