Here is some general troubleshooting procedures for kernel panics:

Kernel panics usual are caused by hardware problems, not software. If the links above don't fix the problem and your computer is still under warranty, I would make an appointment at your nearest Genius Bar.

Is your cooling fan kicking in often? Does your mac get hot? it could be overheating. could be hardware (bad/unseated memory), could be software (power management issues).  Too many things it can be.

You can startoff with resetting your pram, and see how it goes from there.

By the output provided, it looks like the graphics card driver is causing the panic... something to do with the cpu offloading to the graphics gpu.

Go to system preferences, Energy Saver, and uncheck the box Automatic Graphics Switching.

See if that helps
