Use of CUDA architecture

Postby Billie1123 » 18 Oct 2016, 14:59

Hello,

The simulation I am working on uses several vision sensors such as LIDAR, stereo cameras, etc, which makes the simulation slow.
Recently, I have read about the parallel computing capability of many NVIDIA cards, CUDA. V-REP does not seem to make use of this feature, since I have CUDA installed and my GPU utilization barely reaches a 30% at maximum demand.

Apparently, in other applications, the use of this technology results in a drastic increment of the performance, so it might be a good way to handle vision related calculations.

Could V-REP make use of this technology? Is V-REP expected to fully support these kind of graphic cards?

Regards

Hello,

this is planned, but is not of highest priority since speed is less our focus than functionality and flexibility.

Cheers

Ok, good to know. It was just a curiosity for the long term, it's not a critical aspect.

Regards.
