Hexagon at Smart City Expo World Congress 2019
Creating safe, sustainable cities takes a Smart Digital Reality
There are as many definitions for what a “Smart City” could and should be as there are cities themselves. But it’s important to ask: Why are we even talking about creating “smart” cities? What about safe cities? Or sustainable cities?
At Hexagon, we’re focused on putting data to work to deliver better outcomes for our cities and nations. The “smart” we care about is the Smart Digital Reality™, which helps our customers bring the physical and digital worlds together as one. Smart Digital Realities are the only way safety can become a certainty and sustainability can move from vision to reality.
Hexagon doesn’t make or sell “Smart Cities” — we empower something far more tangible and revolutionary. Join us at Stand C-343 at Smart City Expo World Congress 2019 to discover how.
Reality capture for a digital city
Visit us at SCEWC to discover Hexagon’s vast portfolio of sensor-based reality capture solutions that enable a complete digital replica of a city — where all things, places, activities and events are machine-readable and subject to the power of algorithms.
From the digital capture of every street and every building to the city’s entire underground infrastructure — water, gas, and sewage lines. There’s no other company offering such a range of integrated solutions to create the smart digital realities that your city needs.
You won’t want to miss our live presentations on how to create a complete digital twin of your city or how to use reality capture technologies for forensics analysis, and much more.

Infinite insight for an intelligent city
You can’t manage what you can’t see. That’s one of the biggest problems that cities and nations face because reality is an ever-changing dynamic. Cities need the ability to draw and act on infinite data sources simultaneously, even in real time.
Come experience Hexagon’s 5D smart digital realities that leverage infinite layers of data to deliver intelligence for any city challenge — from citizen engagement apps to real-time monitoring environments for traffic safety and flood management, urban planning, and utilities operations, and more. The outcome is knowledge — into what was, what is, what could be, what should be, and ultimately, predictive intelligence into what will be.

Abstract: A key element of smart cities is surveillance. Conventional, camera-based city surveillance has its limits. Why use “flat”, 2D images for a 3D task? The new Leica BLK247 is a smart 3D surveillance tool that monitors environments and provides real-time situational awareness using LiDAR-enabled change detection technology. Through continuous scanning, AI and edge computing, the BLK247 can instantly detect any unwanted intrusions, unusual behaviours or unattended items. By providing immediate communication, there's no need to constantly watch walls of security screens or dashboards — the BLK247 alerts you of any changes, expected or unexpected.
In this presentation, discover how to monitor security conditions, evaluate detected anomalies and efficiently respond to incidents.
