Where we're going, we won't need roads
Enabling the future of autonomy means developing positioning technologies, sensors and software stacks that work on-road, off-road, in the air and on the water. Across Hexagon's Autonomy & Positioning division, we're driving innovation for autonomy wherever it's needed.

In collaboration with Hexagon's Mining division, we developed autonomous road-train hauling platforms with Mineral Resources Ltd in Western Australia. The automated off-road road-train solution improves the safety of long-range haulage, provides cost-efficiencies and reduces emissions to assist companies in lowering their carbon footprint. Beyond mining, this innovative solution will also benefit bulk haulage in many other off-road primary industries.

Autonomy at sea faces unique challenges. Autonomous systems rely on absolute positioning technologies almost exclusively as there are no landmarks to assist sensors like cameras or photogrammetry. In the case of the Mayflower Autonomous Ship, the positioning system from Hexagon | VERIPOS was a lifesaver when the autonomous vessel had technical issues.

The expertise at Hexagon | AutonomouStuff provides the foundation for Hexagon to develop autonomous solutions like these; it also makes us the ideal partner in enabling autonomy with our clients and in collaboration with universities.
