Hexagon and Fujitsu announce strategic partnership to help cities use data to solve societal challenges for a ‘Trusted Society’
Hexagon and Fujitsu will partner to accelerate the development of use cases to solve societal challenges for a ‘Trusted Society’ — a sustainable, resilient place where people can live together in peace and prosperity.
They will leverage digital twin technologies, including:
- IoT sensors
- data processing
- AI analysis
- advanced data visualization in the cloud
- high-performance computing infrastructure
They will deploy these technologies to develop solutions that deliver deeper insights to customers in government, the public sector, transportation and utilities to help reduce emissions, increase safety, optimize operations and more.
Cities play a leading role in solving global challenges
Yoshinami Takahashi, EVP and vice head of Global Solution Business Group, Fujitsu, said: “Our goal at Fujitsu is to realize 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, said: “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 partnership builds from the companies’ work to solve urban sustainability challenges in Europe, including efforts to better manage and understand the impacts of shared mobility services in Germany, including a project with the City of Munich.
