“A car is a mobile phone with four wheels,” said Dr. Wang Chenglu, President of Huawei’s software department. In the era of traditional automobile, the core of the development of automobile industry is the traditional “three big pieces” of engine, gearbox and chassis. But with the continuous development of technology, the era of intelligent vehicles has come. The future car may be a smart phone with four wheels, and chip is the core technology. < / P > < p > according to the introduction, journey 3 adopts a 16 nanometer process, based on the bpu2.0 architecture independently developed by horizon, and its AI computing power reaches 5 Tops, with a typical power consumption of only 2.5W, has the characteristics of high performance, low power consumption, strong expansibility, safety and reliability, and supports various application scenarios such as high-level auxiliary driving, intelligent cockpit, automatic parking assistance, high-level automatic driving and crowdsourcing high-precision map positioning. According to Yu Kai, founder and CEO of horizon, the chip can support image detection, classification, pixel level segmentation and other functions based on deep learning, as well as efficient coding of H.264 and h.265 video formats, which can better realize multi-channel AI computing and multi-channel digital video recording. < / P > < p > in August last year, horizon released the standard AI chip for journey 2, and this year, it developed an intelligent cockpit NPU computing platform based on the chip with Changan Automobile and other automobile enterprises. It is worth mentioning that journey 2 is also the first vehicle specification level AI chip in China. < / P > < p > it is reported that the cumulative sales volume of Chang’an uni-t equipped with the chip has exceeded 31500. In addition, Chery ant, which was launched on September 22, also carries the journey 2 chip. < / P > < p > at present, horizon is fully developing journey 5 chip. The chip is oriented to higher level automatic driving scenarios. A single chip can achieve 96 tops AI computing power, and the automatic driving computing platform composed of 192-384 tops computing power. < / P > < p > although it has not yet been released, many car companies have ordered the journey 5 chip in advance, and even some car companies have planned ahead of time the models to carry the journey 5. < / P > < p > it is understood that horizon has reached in-depth cooperation with Audi, FAW red flag, SAIC Group, GAC group, Chang’an Automobile, BYD, ideal automobile and Great Wall Motor in the field of intelligent driving, and has initially built an intelligent car core ecology covering intelligent driving and intelligent cockpit.
