Do good, help others do good, talk about it, and let others talk about it. That is how we take responsibility, by accelerating sustainable developments and harmonising the planet, people and prosperity.

Our solutions already contribute to environmental and social sustainability by improving efficiency, quality, and safety in a broad array of industries. We have long been proud enablers of our customers’ sustainability journeys — but we didn’t talk about it. With this edition of our customer magazine, we’re changing that.

2021 is a very special year for us — we are celebrating 100 years of Innovation Heerbrugg and, with it, honour thousands of committed people who have driven innovations worldwide for a century and created many unforgettable moments. Heerbrugg is and will remain one of the largest global locations for Hexagon. The high-performance innovation factory ensures technology leadership for Hexagon. Innovation was important 100 years ago when WILD Heerbrugg was established, and it is essential today. In the historic review by Eugen Voit, who held various senior technology leadership roles over the last decades, you will read that tradition and change do not have to be a contradiction. The continuous striving for innovation is the link between stability and change, and the basis for sustainable developments.

从过去学习意味着更好的未来。传播创新并因此解决客户和社会问题的技术的冲动牢固地固定在我们的企业文化中。让CTO Hexagon的BurkhardBöckbob体育报道em带您进入未来。找出已经进行了哪些技术飞跃,我们将未来的技术趋势转化为具体的解决方案,以及我们如何通过使技术广泛访问来利用这些机会。

当然,即使我们每次都符合此问题,因此选择的,高度创新的传感和软件解决方案也将在本期中进行介绍。我们告诉您客户如何利用我们的解决方案来解决他们的业务挑战并发展其公司。此外,我们将解释该项目如何积极影响可持续性,或者特色解决方案如何促进至关重要的研究。新加坡的一家专业土地测量公司通过Leica GS18 I GNSS RTK Rover扩大了业务,同时为员工提供更安全的工作。使用六角形解决方案优化采矿机队管理意味着可观的成本节省,并且也大大减少了矿山的环bob体育报道境足迹。了解Leica Chiroptera 4X如何帮助评估海洋健康以及重型建筑中的机器自动化如何确保公司按时按时在预算内交付项目,同时确保人们的安全并降低排放。

Beyond enabling others’ sustainability journeys, we are also committed to lowering our own impact on the environment and that of our supply and value chain. Driving a culture of sustainability within our company is going to be accelerated.

高密度airborne LiDAR sensor ideal for challenging coastal survey of Sylt

Arctia-Meritaito efficiently produced a seamless digital terrain model of land and water along the shallow coastal areas of the German island of Sylt using a Leica Chiroptera 4X airborne bathymetric sensor.

Colour-infrared images provide a different perspective

对于许多应用,尤其是涉及植被和湿地的应用程序,空中图像产品中的第四个频段提供了大量信息。第四个频段是指电磁频谱中的近红外(NIR)波长,是人眼看不见的,但是图像分析和变化检测的有价值的工具。颜色 - 粉红色(CIR)或假色图像由NIR,红色和绿色带组成,而真实的颜色图像显示可见的红色,绿色和蓝色带。通过将无形的NIR频段显示为可见的频段,可以“看到”并分析NIR反射值。


Aligning mine planning with mine operations by implementing mine planning software and mine monitoring systems can result in significant increases in production while lowering operational and capital costs. Generating the best possible mine plan requires a wholeness approach and monitoring its execution is key to ensuring the operation stays on track and that business objectives are achieved.

Keeping trucks on target

Minimising operational and maintenance costs is a key business driver in mining. The challenge is doing this in a stressful, ever-changing environment. At the front line are dispatchers responsible for scheduling and assigning work orders to operators and equipment. Their decision-making keeps a fleet running efficiently.

Kumba Iron Ore at the intersection of talent and community

Adding autonomy and other technology to a mine can cause significant concerns within the local community. Improving efficiency can be directly perceived as reducing the need for local labor. Likewise, skilled labor might be drawn from the talent pool further afield, leaving the surrounding community with fewer jobs. In 2017, Kumba Iron Ore committed to the local community by setting a new target enabling R500 million (US$30 million) of its procurement spend to be directed to, and invested in, local business.
