2019-11-19 08:00 GMT+01

Hexagon AB, a global leader in sensor, software and autonomous solutions, is showcasing its solutions for safe, sustainable cities at the Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC) 2019, which commences today in Barcelona.

“Hexagon doesn’t make or sell `Smart Cities’ – we offer technology solutions that are far more tangible and revolutionary,” said Ola Rollén, Hexagon President and CEO. “The `smart’ we care about is the Smart Digital Reality™, which brings the physical and digital worlds together as one, empowering city leaders with the capabilities and tools to ensure public safety becomes a certainty and sustainable cities a reality.”

At stand C-343, Hexagon will host live, interactive experiences showcasing the powerful combination of reality capture, a holistic approach to safety and security, and the location intelligence to meet any city challenge. Presentations and discussions will centre around three key areas:

  • Reality capture for a digital city: How to create complete, accurate, precise, photo-realistic digital replicas of cities – from every street and building to a city’s entire underground infrastructure
  • Absolute certainty for a safe city: How to enable connectivity between systems, collaboration between teams, and greater intelligence in operations – from removing the limits of 2D, camera-based surveillance to connecting agencies and departments city-wide
  • Infinite insight for an intelligent city: How to leverage infinite layers of data in 5D – from citizen engagement apps and real-time monitoring environments for traffic safety and flood management to urban planning, utility operations, and more
