Hexagon, a developer of autonomous sensor and software solutions, has announced the launch of a new Smart Autonomous Mobility solutions portfolio designed to bring complete autonomous driving applications to fruition. The launch was made at CES 2020 in Las Vegas.
Hexagon aims to provide a complete set of facilities for autonomous mobility, from research and development to advanced machine learning and simulation, through to full integration and production into industry ecosystems. The company’s new Smart Autonomous Mobility portfolio includes three different solution sets: Enable, Accelerate and Deploy.
Enable provides an R&D fast track, featuring hardware, software, and services that quickly enable autonomous driving systems across a variety of vehicle platforms and applications. These technologies include a turn-key automated driving research vehicle platform for field testing, customisable positioning engines with reliable correction services, and baseline simulation tools and high-accuracy ground truth.
Accelerate provides customers with seamless workflows between real-world and simulated environments, allowing developers to optimise, verify and validate the necessary billions of miles of simulated driving required to safely deploy autonomous vehicles to the road. The toolset features machine learning, simulation and testing for entire system performance, and engineering and integration services, as well as HD digital reality capture, visualisation and on-demand feature extraction.
Deploy allows customers to quickly scale from prototype and R&D phases to production for any autonomous application. The automotive-grade hardware solutions, autonomy software technologies, and functionally safe positioning solutions and services available in Hexagon’s Smart Autonomous Mobility portfolio are ready to deploy at scale for:
- Mass production of passenger vehicles
- Neighborhood electrical vehicles (NEV)
- Tractor trailers (class 8)
- Off-road vehicles for mining, agriculture and defense
- Robotics, aviation, marine and space travel
Ola Rollén, Hexagon President and CEO, commented: “Through our Smart Autonomous Mobility solutions portfolio, Hexagon is empowering an autonomous future that can transform ecosystems, protecting millions of lives and dramatically lowering carbon emissions. We are committed to providing complete technology solutions that enable our customers to build, test and put fully autonomous fleets to work safely.”
