Horizon Robotics’ Journey 2 is the 2020 Vision Product of the Year Award Winner in the Automotive Solutions category. Journey 2™ is Horizon’s open AI compute solution, focused on ADAS, intelligent cockpit and autonomous driving edge processing. The Journey 2 solution includes a domain-specific deep learning automotive processor, the Horizon AI toolchain and Horizon’s perception algorithms. It enables OEMs and Tier 1s to create advanced designs at high energy efficiency and high cost effectiveness, while delivering high-performance inference results.

The Journey 2 automotive processor integrates Horizon’s unique deep learning engine, the BPU (Brain Processing Unit), an ARM CPU sub-system and a dedicated image signal processor. The BPU design followed a novel approach of co-development and co-optimization across the Horizon AI processor, AI toolchain and AI algorithms teams. Horizon’s experts have uncovered hardware and software innovations that achieve an optimum balance of performance, low latency, high accuracy, energy efficiency and cost effectiveness, with a focus on perception workloads, including object detection, classification and semantic segmentation. The carefully tuned ensemble of the Journey 2 processor, optimizing compiler and perception algorithms is ideal to power enhanced ADAS, autonomous driving, and AI in-cabin safety and comfort systems, to be deployed at scale in personal vehicles, robotaxis, shuttles, delivery robots or existing fleets. Journey 2, in series production today, is compliant to the AEC-Q100 grade 2 quality standard.
