Hexagon at HxGN LIVE Global 2023, in Las Vegas, has announced that its Mining and Autonomy & Positoning divisions have joined forces to enable more automation at scale, and ease and speed of application.
The announcement, coming at the Intelligent Mining Summit, was made by Nick Hare, President, Hexagon’s Mining division, and Maria Luthström, President, Hexagon’s Autonomy & Positioning division.
“We’re bringing together our best solutions…to enable autonomy at scale; make it simple to implement and make it (automation) easy to use,” Hare said.
The formation of Hexagon’s new autonomous solutions partnership aims to create the world’s largest provider of autonomous solutions for off-road, heavy industries, according to Hare.
