Automotive Safety Critical Display Market

The automotive market is undergoing a fundamental change in vehicle form and functionality.  The integration of driver assist with chassis control systems is enabling an increase in ADAS features that require higher levels of console display functionality and sophistication.  Safety alert and warning systems are being integrated into the main display and the types of warning and intervention messages are increasing in complexity and number.  Additionally, enhanced vision and other new display technologies are emerging as features of future vehicles.

One of the important factors in the design of modern display systems is the availability and assurance of information.  Integral to high reliability display systems is the requirement that a display operate in a deterministic and real-time way.  It is realized that safety information and features cannot be reliably communicated unless the display can be trusted to operate in a predictable manner.  This safety design approach is standard practice in today’s avionics platforms and in many industrial and military land and sea systems.  Safety critical display systems rely on software and hardware designed to operate without fail under difficult environmental and application conditions.

As display safety requirements converge under FAA and ISO26262 standards, the technology to deploy a low cost but safe automotive display system is now a reality.  CoreAVI is bringing years of experience in the avionics marketplace to the automotive console display application.  With the ratification of OpenGL SC2.0 in April of 2016, a full complement of 3D graphics libraries is now available for use in real-time safety critical automotive applications. 

AutoCore™ - Automotive Software Libraries for 3D Graphical Displays

CoreAVI has applied its expertise in safety critical avionics software to the automotive display and console marketplace.  As the complexity of safety systems in the automotive industry increases, so too does the need for increased display functionality and very high levels of display availability.  Even more critical is the requirement to prevent the display of Hazardously Misleading Information (HMI) in safety situations.  CoreAVI has developed safety critical automotive display driver libraries for many of the leading graphical processors from NXP/Freescale, Intel, Verisilicon/Vivante and AMD.  These drivers run with real time operating systems such as QNX, Linux, Intel VXWorks and others and can also work with proprietary operating systems.   

CoreAVI AutoCore safety critical graphics drivers are designed from the ground up specifically for efficient real time operation.  CoreAVI drivers can be delivered to ISO26262 requirements while also meeting the latest open graphics API standards:

OpenGL SC (Safety Critical)

OpenGL SC2.0 (Safety Critical)

AutoCore products also include hardware accelerated video processing high reliability driver modules that allow video data to be displayed as a graphical texture for integration with other graphical content.
