Recogni unveils Pegasus PCIe for autonomous mobility solutions

San Jose, Calif. – August 22, 2023 – Recogni Inc. the AI-based processing for autonomous vehicles, announced the availability of Pegasus, a PCIe card. That allows Recogni’s Scorpio, the world’s first 1000 TOPS (Peta-Op) class inference solution for autonomous mobility, to be configured for any autonomous mobility application. By combining Pegasus and Recogni SDK, customers feel Scorpio’s potent computing power, thus enhancing their experience of its value. This comes with not only low power consumption, but also low latency and low system cost.

“The need for autonomous capability is growing rapidly across all forms of transportation. Recogni dedicates itself to furnishing the most potent, purpose-specific solutions for autonomous mobility, irrespective of the 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. It also demonstrates 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 utilizes four 8MP cameras for all-around views, employing Recogni SDK to manage model conversion, compilation, profiling, and deployment. Perception output includes various components such as 3D object detection, vulnerable road user detection, lane detection, free space detection, and traffic light/sign detection. This diverse set of capabilities makes Pegasus a highly flexible solution for a wide range of autonomous mobility applications. Moreover, these applications encompass robotaxis, autonomous trucking, drones, autonomous delivery vehicles, and even autonomous aviation.

Utilizing legacy tech, unconventional AI handles monumental self-driving perception, departing from traditional solutions repurposed for autonomous mobility challenges. Recogni’s system is purpose-built to overcome compute and power efficiency barriers specific to autonomous mobility. Using Pegasus along with the Recogni SDK demonstrates that Recogni’s purpose-built accelerator, Scorpio, stands prepared for implementation in a range of autonomous applications. In addition, Pegasus has a high degree of development and deployment flexibility. This allows for much faster time to market for any autonomous mobility application.

“Having been in the automotive and autonomous driving industry for decades, it became clear. Autonomous capabilities would only be able to go so far when using existing technology,” said Dr. Yvonne Lutsch, Investment Principal, Bosch Ventures. “Recogni has proven that to move the industry forward, it requires purpose-built technology. This technology should be powerful, flexible, and easy to integrate. And Recogni continues to demonstrate their credibility as an autonomous technology provider.”
