About This Module

Simple communication between processes is often a the base layer for more complex systems, e.g., running on different devices. The NVIDIA® DriveWorks IPC module provides simple functionality enabling platform-agnostic inter-process communication.

Network sockets are used as the communication channel of the DriveWorks socket client/server API. A server is initialized with dwSocketServer_initialize() and will accept incoming connections from a client with dwSocketServer_accept(). Clients (initialized with dwSocketClient_initialize()) connect to a server with dwSocketClient_connect(). Both accepting (server) and connecting (client) result in a connection dwSocketConnectionHandle_t in both processes, which can be used to transmit (dwSocketConnection_write()) and receive (dwSocketConnection_read()) data.
