Automate and digitalise quality measurement with our world-leading metrology hardware and software, creating a bridge between the real and digital worlds.
Deploy Hexagon’s sensor software systems to transform siloed and disconnected processes into an integrated, data-driven manufacturing ecosystem that captures and creates value across the product lifecycle, enabling new business models and automating workflows to become increasingly autonomous, efficient and sustainable.
Automation and autonomy
Adopt turnkey automation and positioning solutions — from machine control to fully autonomous — that reduce inputs, optimise yields and assure safety-critical operations while ensuring sustainability and resiliency across crop lifecycles.
Data management, logistics and analysis
Leverage data across the entire crop lifecycle of agricultural and forestry operations — from preparation to planting, cultivation to harvest — to ensure efficient field operations that align to plan and optimise yield and maximise profitability.
Integrate field-ready advanced technologies for OEMs, including GNSS assured positioning and correction services for precision farming, machine controls and visualisation for analysis and planning.
Overcome the inherent challenges of planning across multiple time horizons with Hexagon’s unique approach to smart farming that optimises agricultural and forestry land use, workflows, equipment and processes to increase productivity and yield and minimise waste.
Material movement solutions
Execute successful material movement through planning, fleet management, safety and slope monitoring powered by integrated mining technology.
Orchestrate the construction process more simply, creating a model of productivity and efficiency with higher quality, fewer reworks and less waste while ensuring worksite safety.
Maintain a data-driven approach to orchestrate the entire construction phase, creating a 3D model of productivity and efficiency — with higher quality, fewer reworks and less waste — while layering 4D cost and 5D BIM scheduling data throughout the project.
Autonomous mobility research and development platforms that enable automation functionality across a diverse set of control systems and industrial applications.
Autonomous mobility testing that creates a seamless workflow between real-world and simulated environments to accelerate, optimise, verify and validate billions of test drive kilometres and real-world scenarios.
