At the International Motor Show in Frankfurt (IAA), Horizon Robotics, leader of side AI computing, unveiled its 2nd era car AI processor – Horizon Journey™ 2 to the international public. Founded in 2015, Horizon Robotics has enabled Tier1s and OEMs across North America, Europe, and Asia to develop superior deep-studying solutions that energy the destiny of the automotive industry.
Journey™ 2 is one of the first AEC-Q100 compliant deep mastering compute options to be had to Tier1s and OEMs trying to allow the following technology ADAS capabilities and smart cockpit reports with restrained energy consumption and remarkable performance and efficiency.
The processor boasts Horizon Robotics’ proprietary incredibly efficient programmable deep learning computation cores – BPU, twin-center ARM Cortex-A53, and devoted photo sign processor. Thanks to the committed BPU cores which dominate 60% of the silicon footprint, Journey™ 2 gives powerful deep gaining knowledge of the performance of four TOPS with normal power consumption at 2W*. It is constructed on TSMC’s strong 28nm HPC+ technique.
Journey™ 2 can manner 4K video inputs at 30 frames per 2nd and entire the parsing of 23+ semantic categories, 2D+three-D detection of loads of objects, distance and pace estimation and other key belief capabilities to satisfy Euro NCAP 2022 requirement. Horizon Robotics additionally offers to its clients noticeably optimized manufacturing-equipped perception software for ADAS and independent using as an alternative for flip-key notion solutions based on Journey™ 2.
Along with Journey™ 2, Horizon Robotics is likewise launching the Horizon OpenExplorer AI Toolkit which allows clients to set up custom deep learning networks on Journey™ 2 to leverage it’s effective to compute overall performance. The OpenExplorer AI Toolkit also includes design examples and great practices to seriously improve time-to-marketplace for customers.
Journey™ 2 has additionally already attracted many lead customers. SK Telecom, South Korea’s main telecommunication organization, is currently in the manner of equipping tens of lots of automotive with JourneyTM 2 to enable crowd-sourced HD map updates in addition to ADAS functions, paving the manner closer to more secure and more automatic driving. Several leading car OEM & Tier-1 patron round the arena have additionally offered layout wins to Journey™ 2; with production automotive geared up with Journey™ 2 to start mass production as early as 2d Quarter of 2020.
