Functional safety is an important consideration for many applications of GPU computing, especially autonomous driving, robotics, and healthcare. We'll cover what it means to be compliant with current functional safety standards, learn the basics of functional safety, and uncover how the prevailing standard, ISO26262, can apply to GPUs and GPU programming. Often the development of an application’s core features takes precedence, leaving functional safety considerations until the end of the development cycle. If functional safety is considered and planned from the start, results can improve while cost decreases. We'll explain the support that NVIDIA has implemented inside GPUs for functional safety and the various tools and methodologies that are available to support ISO26262 compliance for both hardware and software.
