How Hexagon creates value for the automotive industry
Harnessing data for a smarter and more sustainable automotive future
From electric and hydrogen powertrains to fully autonomous vehicles, the automotive industry is developing new generations of smarter, more sustainable vehicles.
Hexagon accelerates innovation with a digital-first, data-driven approach in design, manufacturing and operations.
The new mobility paradigm
The automotive industry is facing a digital revolution. Digital transformation of consumer technologies is driving demand for smarter, more connected and increasingly autonomous transportation, transforming the way vehicles are designed, developed and manufactured.
Future vehicles present new challenges. Where electric vehicles have fewer parts than combustion engine equivalents, complexity is added in systems such as power electronics and onboard computers. The supply chain needs to evolve and adapt to these changing requirements amid uncertainty about which innovations consumers will be willing to adopt.
Automotive manufacturers are responding to this unpredictability by turning to increasingly digitalised business models. By digitally connecting every stage of the product lifecycle using advanced manufacturing solutions, automakers gain the agility and resilience they need to compete in the new mobility paradigm.
