The Vulkan SC Journey to Deliver Safety Critical Graphics and Compute


VulkanSC LogoThe upcoming release of the Vulkan SC™ 1.0 specification by Khronos will mark an important milestone in developing an open API standard that leverages the performance of modern GPUs to satisfy the graphics and compute needs of future safety critical systems. As the Vulkan SC Working Group continues to make significant progress, we take the opportunity in this blog to share some of the challenges that have been overcome on our journey to define a state-of-the-art API specifically designed to benefit the automotive and avionics industries.


Using Khronos Standards to Gamify Engineering Education


The Virtual Learning Factory Toolkit (VLFT) project is a pioneering program commissioned by the European Union using virtual and augmented reality to enhance engineering education programs across Europe. Five EU partners make up the VLFT Consortium, including Estonia’s Tallinna University of Technology, Hungary’s Institute for Computer Science and Control, Italy’s Politecnico di Milano, the National Research Council of Italy, and Sweden’s Chalmers University of Technology. Using Khronos standards, the VLFT consortium has created a suite of tools to gamify learning, strengthen information and communication technology (ICT) skills, and better prepare students for jobs in 21st century manufacturing.
