PCIe card for autonomous mobility solutions

24-08-2023 | Recogni | Test & Measurement

Recogni Inc now offers the Pegasus, a PCIe card that enables its Scorpio, the world’s first 1000 TOPS (Peta-Op) class inference solution for autonomous mobility, to be configured for any autonomous mobility application. When using Pegasus with the Recogni SDK, customers can experience the value of Scorpio’s high compute capabilities, low power consumption, low latency and low system cost.

“The need for autonomous capability is growing rapidly across all forms of transportation, and Recogni is committed to providing the most powerful, purpose-built solutions for autonomous mobility, regardless of use case,” said Marc Bolitho, CEO of Recogni. “Being able to easily integrate Scorpio into any autonomous mobility application with our new Pegasus PCIe card and Recogni’s SDK showcases the multiplatform flexibility, as well as the robustness and readiness of our solutions. We’re pleased to empower our customers with system architectural flexibility and fast deployment in autonomous mobility applications.”

Pegasus can process up to four 8MP cameras to provide front and surround views and uses the SDK to convert, compile, profile and deploy models. Perception output includes 3D object detection, vulnerable road user detection, lane detection, free space detection, and traffic light/sign detection, making a flexible solution for various autonomous mobility applications, including robotaxis, autonomous trucking, drones, autonomous delivery vehicles, and autonomous aviation.

Unlike conventional solutions based on legacy technology and repurposed for the monumental task of AI perception processing for autonomous mobility, the system is purpose-built to overcome compute and power efficiency barriers specific to autonomous mobility. Using Pegasus together with the SDK proves that its purpose-built accelerator, Scorpio, is ready to be implemented in various autonomous applications. Also, because Pegasus has a high degree of development and deployment flexibility, it provides for a much faster time to market for any autonomous mobility application.
