About Horizon Robotics

Horizon Robotics is a global AI leader, specialized in efficient AI computing for automotive intelligence applications. Our inspiring mission is “to make life safer and better through edge-AI computing“ with a vision to “empower every vehicle with our AI computing platform“.

Founded in 2015, Horizon Robotics creates the most efficient AI technology for smart vehicles and robotics, by jointly designing high-performance, domain specific automotive grade AI processors, and advanced AI algorithms. Horizon's open and user-friendly platform enables developers to create safe and reliable automated driving applications, intelligent cockpit and other functions of the software defined car. Horizon has reinvented the automotive AI processor to offer the ultimate combination of AI performance and compute efficiency, low energy consumption and competitive cost. The company launched its first- and second-generations Journey 2 and Journey 3 in 2019 and 2020, which are designed into over 40 vehicle models, with 13 models already announced, to power ADAS and smart cockpit applications. In July 2021, Horizon Robotics announced its third-generation Journey 5, designed for all level of autonomy, delivering 128 TOPS at less than 30W. Journey 5 is ASIL-B, Cybersecurity ISO 21434 compliant and will be the heart of central computers, to realize the promise of AI in automated driving, integrated with intelligent cockpit interactions.

Around the world, Horizon Robotics is the trusted technology solution of a rapidly growing ecosystem of partners.
