Hexagon Showcases Digital, Safe and Connected Solutions at Smart City Expo World Congress
Tuesday, November 14, 2017

NACKA STRAND, Sweden, Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hexagon AB, a leading global provider of information technology solutions, will showcase its solutions for digital, safe and connected smart cities in Barcelona, Spain at Smart City Expo World Congress, the leading international event for smart cities.

Driven by disruptive innovation, Hexagon's information technology portfolio empowers customers with integrated data feeds and seamless workflows to create smart ecosystems, which Hexagon calls Smart X. From smart cities, smart power plants, and smart factories, to smart mines and smart farms, Hexagon leverages data to digitally transform the way these systems operate.

Hexagon will be at Stand C-327 showcasing how cities of all sizes can cure growing pains, not just cope with them, from reduced power consumption and comfortable housing to less waste and full access to public services. Hexagon will demonstrate its laser scanners, mobile mapping technologies, public safety command and control system, smart city apps and more. Hexagon's solutions will also be showcased in conjunction with partners Huawei in Stand B-201 and Microsoft in Stand C-301.

"To be smart, cities must be digital, safe and connected," said Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén "At Smart City Expo World Congress, we will demonstrate how our sensors and data, industry expertise and technologies and platforms empower cities to reach their fullest potential."

During panel discussions at the event, Hexagon executives will address key topics for smart cities:

    --  Engaging and Empowering People Using Data and Digital Innovations -
        Claudio Simão, Chief Technology Officer of Hexagon ABDigital
        innovations can help empower civic society by improving engagement in
        democratic processes. Yet, with all the apps and platforms available,
        it's hard to set out a model of citizen engagement going beyond the
        digital suggestion box and bearing in mind privacy and security related
        issues. How can city managers better leverage data to model engagement?
        How can they avoid being drowned in feedback while being inclusive?

    --  Bend Not Break: Preparing Our Cities to Respond to Emergencies and
        Disasters - Steven Cost, President of Hexagon Safety &
        InfrastructureCities are vulnerable to natural and human-caused
        disasters. Hence, they need to be ready to respond effectively and
        ensure that a comprehensive, all-hazard emergency plan is set to address
        threats specific to their unique circumstances. Yet, transitioning from
        day-to-day duties to emergency operations requires a clear definition of
        roles and responsibilities. How can cities better prepare to cope with
        emergencies and boost resilience?
    --  Rethinking Urban Infrastructures in the Digital Age - Uwe Jasnoch,
        Director of Government, Transportation & Defence at Hexagon Safety &
        InfrastructureThe infrastructure that cities provide has evolved as
        needs changed and opportunities arose. Today, sensors check air quality,
        roadway cameras help with traffic flow and new energy systems have come
        to fruition. This evolution has the potential to have the greatest
        impact, as long as it involves citizens and leverages their creativity
        and innovation. How can local governments rethink urban infrastructures
        so they better serve city dwellers?
