Beyond the digital twin: Smart Digital Reality defined:
Two worlds, ONE reality

Smart Digital Reality redefines the notion of what’s real. This is the fusion of the physical world and the digital world—no longer are they two separate realities. This is the state where all data are digitally available, in one place, in real time, with 360-degree context, providing complete line-of-sight to every situation in an ever-changing world.


Unique to Hexagon is our portfolio of core technology competencies, that create intelligent sensor-software systems that integrate the right data in the right place at the right time, bringing speed, certainty and agility to any workflow.

From the factory floor to a city’s emergency services, from mega construction projects to safely landing an aircraft, everyone is trying to improve and perfect their workflows. When workflows don’t meet their potential, productivity, quality, safety and profit all suffer.

Real-time and autonomous digital twins

By enabling real-time data capture and analyses and bringing the freedom of autonomy to the digital twin, we transform a twin’s function and utility far beyond a static, single source of truth. Autonomous technologies, like machine learning and AI, enable our customers to create systems that reduce and even eliminate human intervention.

This is when data does its greatest work, empowering our customers to work in ways that go far beyond what was ever possible.
