Hexagon, Fujitsu to rollout digital tech for smart cities

Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division and Fujitsu have teamed up to accelerate the development and realisation of Fujitsu’s ‘Trusted Society’.

This concept is all about implementing and innovating trustworthy technologies to solve social problems and promote abundance, safety and security, and sustainability.

The partnership was announced this week at HxGN LIVE Global 2022, Hexagon’s digital technology conference taking place in Las Vegas.

Hexagon and Fujitsu will collaborate to provide joint use cases leveraging digital twin technologies and solutions from both companies.

These include IoT sensors, data processing, AI analysis, advanced data visualisation, and high-performance computing infrastructure.

The partners will deploy these technologies to develop joint solutions that deliver richer information and deeper insights to customers in government, the public sector, transportation, and utilities.

It is hoped that this will help reduce emissions, increase safety, optimise operations, and more.

Yoshinami Takahashi, EVP and vice head of Global Solution Business Group, Fujitsu, said: “Our goal at Fujitsu is to realise our vision for a ‘Trusted Society’.

“Partnering with Hexagon will allow us to extend our reach and provide even greater value to cities and regions around the world.”

Steven Cost, president, Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division, added: “Cities are playing a leading role in solving global challenges, from addressing climate change to eliminating traffic fatalities.

“Our partnership with Fujitsu can help cities put data to work to solve these pressing problems and meet sustainability and safety goals.”

The new global partnership builds from the companies’ work to solve urban sustainability challenges in Europe, including a project with the City of Munich to better manage and understand the impacts of shared mobility services.
