“The acquisition of AutonomouStuff accelerates Hexagon’s ability to move our customers beyond the data impasse of IoT,” said Ola Rollén, Hexagon President and CEO. “We’re particularly interested in technologies that are the most disruptive – those capable of leveraging the vast potential of data being generated by connected things, integrating AI, Edge-Cloud Orchestration, Mobility, and Data Visualization into autonomous connected ecosystems.”
“When combined with our positioning intelligence, mapping and sensing technology leadership, this acquisition creates a nexus of domain expertise that will lead the autonomous mobility industry for years to come.”
Hexagon has been an industry leader in GNSS for many years, and the company’s Safety Critical Systems Group has been working on applications for a variety of autonomous X. Hexagon has been working closely with AutonomouStuff as an important technology provider, and the two companies share common customers.
