I recently took part in the largest conference and trade fair in the world for geoinformation and land management. At INTERGEO 2014 in Berlin, our Hexagon team showcased a suite of geospatial solutions, including the Pegasus:Two backpack, Aibotix UAVs and CaaS technologies, to more than 17,000 attendees. Our current and potential customers had the fantastic opportunity to enjoy hands-on encounters with our products and gain greater understanding of what to seek when it comes to new and updated information technologies.
Leica Geosystems has participated at INTERGEO since its inception decades ago. As part of Hexagon, we now have an even larger presence at this world renowned event.
I’m always excited to see how new technologies are taking shape every year. 2014 was the year of UAVs, including our very own Aibotix X6, which is primarily used in surveying, geo-mapping and construction. We have also transformed our vehicle-independent mobile mapping platform, the Pegasus:Two, making it even more mobile with a new backpack version.
Not only did I have the chance to speak with visitors on the showroom floor about our innovative products and their inspiring wishes for the future, but I also addressed industry concerns on an INTERGEO panel. Sharing our customers’ need to take data from the office to the field in a seamless process, I advocated for the need of increased mobility across our field.
At Hexagon Geosystems, we are facing this challenge head-on. Smartphones have the capabilities to display where and when data is needed, and through automation, software and integration, we are making the information readily available. Creating actionable information is our mission and, therefore, total integration “from Sensor to Information” is our focus. These advances are especially important to the new generation of surveyors who are seeking an easy and usable interface. We are committed to supporting surveyors with the best ‘behind-the-scenes’ surveying technology that works seamlessly across devices.
Engaging with our customers to make our products more mobile, agile and efficient—that’s shaping smart change.
