Hi All,
Does DriveOS 5.2 support IPP ? I see that documentation for 5.1 mentions it, but I do not find it in documentation for 5.2

Also 5.2 does not seem to have sample code that builds sample app like nvmipp_file.
Is there any replacement for IPP in 5.2 ? if so what is it called ?


Hi @ai.trucker,

Please refer to “Changes Introduced in DRIVE OS” section. IPP is deprecated from the release. Thanks.

It seems SIPL is the replacement. Does it support capability to feed ISP from prerecorded images/video (i.e. file feed) ? From quick read of SIPL I am unable to figure out which API to use for feeding ISP from files as opposed to live camera images ?

Please take a look at nvsipl_reprocess under ~/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/DRIVE_OS_5.2.0_SDK_Linux_OS_*/DRIVEOS/drive-t186ref-linux/samples/nvmedia/nvsipl/test/reprocess/ in your host system.
But unfortunately, the source isn’t included in our releases.

nvsipl_reprocess app is targeted for IQ tuning and we consider the implementation as our IP.
nvsipl_sample application has code that you can use as a reference to reprocess through SIPL.
Please take a look at “File input mode” in the document. Thanks.
