Hexagon and LocLab announce strategic partnership to accelerate the adoption of Smart Digital Realities in transportation, construction and urban planning

(Heerbrugg, Switzerland, October 18, 2022) Hexagon’s Geosystems division and LocLab, a leader in 3D digital twin content creation, announced today a strategic partnership to jointly empower industries with Smart Digital Realities in their design, construction and operations processes.

The strategic partnership is focused on increasing the automation of 3D digital twin creation by leveraging reality capture solutions and making digital twins seamlessly accessible to customers by connecting them with HxDR, Hexagon’s cloud-based storage, visualisation, and collaboration platform for reality capture and geospatial data.

LocLab, based in Germany, specialises in the creation of 3D digital twins. Their proprietary technology, enabled by a high degree of automation using proven workflows and artificial intelligence, allows the cost- and time-efficient creation of object-based digital twins of existing machines, plants, buildings, infrastructure, geographic spaces or any other assets.

“The combination of Hexagon’s leading reality capture and software portfolio and LocLab’s automated 3D digital twin creation workflow make Digital Realities more accessible to existing and many new customers,” says Thomas Harring, President Geosystems division at Hexagon. “In addition, the integration of LocLab’s 3D digital content with HxDR technology provides an unprecedented solution, connecting digital twins with existing ERP, IoT or other business process solutions. Open and standardised interfaces allow asset owners and operators as well as their stakeholders to share asset insights and collaborate through digital 3D models, efficiently and accurately.”

“We are excited to integrate our 3D digital content with the HxDR cloud-based platform to help our joint customers to share digital twin content to improve daily operations and maintenance efficiency,” says LocLab’s CEO, Dr. Ilka May. “Furthermore, the joint digital twin solution can be used for various applications, from public relations consultation and visualisation, training applications in virtual spaces and simulation and much more.”
