Enabling assured autonomy across applications.
Autonomy requires assured positioning, navigation and timing (APNT)
Unmanned systems require APNT for safe, reliable and accurate autonomous operations.
Assured autonomy requires that positioning, navigation and timing be secure, reliable, highly available and robust. Hexagon delivers a range of technologies that build system redundancy, accuracy and resiliency against interference and positioning errors.
What is assured autonomy?
Autonomy is assured when it is reliably safe and accurate, resilient against interference or sources of errors and includes built-in resiliency.
Unmanned systems rely on a blend of different positioning and sensor technologies to function, including GNSS/GPS positioning, inertial navigation systems (INS), photogrammetry, LiDAR, RADAR and many others. There are also methods to protect these systems from interference, jamming or spoofing by building their resiliency or using global correction services.
How do I make my platform autonomous?
Any platform can be made autonomous, and Hexagon's engineering and integration services can help identify the best route to achieving autonomy in any environment. We can identify an organisation's hardware and software needs in order to deliver APNT, system redundancy and robustness, as well as highly precise and accurate positioning.
We’re climbing the automation curve
Our transition to Intelligent automation is accelerating. Ultimately, our innovations will give rise to new technologies and applications - many of which we’ve yet to imagine. Today, every Hexagon solution is mapped and tagged according to its level of automation, so customers can clearly track our progress towards the freedom of autonomy.
Human performs all tasks, no data being used
Human is in charge of performing tasks but certain functions are automated to simplify control
Some tasks are automated so that operation can be autonomous for short periods (or within specific circumstances)
Autonomous operation is possible within certain bounds, but human intervention may be necessary at short notice
Designed to complete required tasks autonomously, but may require human intervention if circumstances change beyond specific bounds
Control tasks automated under all conditions, but human may request to take over; can complete all expected tasks without human intervention
