Horizon Robotics' Horizon Matrix is the 2019 Vision Product of the Year Award Winner in the Automotive Solutions category. The Horizon Matrix is an open autonomous driving computing platform. The platform is based on Horizon Robotics’ own edge AI processing unit, BPU2.0, including both hardware and deep learning software technologies. The design is power efficient, yet it delivers a powerful visual perception computing capability that are already in use in L3 and L4 driving automation systems. Thanks to its open design, the platform offers developers the freedom to implement perceptual and sensing tasks with their preferred algorithms and models.
“It's a great honor for Horizon Matrix to be recognized as the 'Best Automotive Solution' by the Embedded Vision Alliance. Horizon Matrix is a high-level autonomous driving computing platform based on Horizon Robotics' second generation BPU – Bernoulli Architecture. It is designed to fulfill multiple computation-intensive and mission-critical tasks for SAE L3 and L4 autonomous driving systems.”
