Modern GPUs are powerful parallel computing devices. In this report, a quick look at the GPU architecture and programming is provided. Collision detection algorithms are briefly surveyed to provide a good overall picture of the field before examining two GPU based collision detection methods in more detail. The fist method is a parallel implementation of collision checking used in probabilistic roadmap(PRM) path planning algorithm. The second method is a semi-brute-force approach to broad phase collision detection on the GPU.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 2.9
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.2
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.0.1, AMD APP SDK 2.9

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.

The information send to hgpu.org will be treated according to our Privacy Policy
