TOKYO, 5 December 2022
Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division and OSASI Technos Inc. announced a partnership to deliver next-generation disaster management and monitoring solutions. The wide area remote monitoring systems with 3D visualization capabilities will allow governments to detect, predict and simulate impending disasters, enabling them to better plan for and respond to emergency events. The news was announced today at a signing ceremony during the Belgian Economic Mission to Japan.
The partnership brings together OSASI’s advanced on-site sensors and monitoring solutions with the real-time situational awareness and location intelligence capabilities of Hexagon’s Luciad Portfolio. Combining on-site information, such as rainfall measurements and river water levels, with maps, 3D data and other information from third-party sources will provide advanced visualization and real-time analysis to unlock insights for predicting and detecting landslides, mudflows, slope failures and other disasters faster.
“At Hexagon, our goal is to enable safer, smarter cities by providing governments and other organizations the tools they need to protect residents and visitors,” said Dirk Wagemans, senior vice president, commercial business, Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division. “By partnering with OSASI to deliver next-generation disaster management and monitoring solutions, governments have greater access to information and insights that could mitigate impacts of disasters and save lives.”
“OSASI has been developing measurement instruments for the field and providing monitoring solutions for observation points through its information sharing services,” said Maki Yano, president of OSASI Technos Inc. “With this new partnership, we aim to develop a new disaster monitoring solution for a wider area based on time-series data from the past to the present, integrating weather, water, and geological data by using Luciad's advanced visualization technology. By providing society with unprecedented intuitive information, we hope to contribute to disaster prediction and realize a safer society.”
