Deployment of the combined resources are hoped to develop joint solutions that deliver richer information and insights to customers in government, the public sector, transportation and utilities to help reduce emissions, increase safety, and optimise operations.
“Our goal at Fujitsu is to realise our vision for a ‘Trusted Society’,” commented Yoshinami Takahashi, Fujitsu executive vice president and vice head. “Partnering with Hexagon will allow us to extend our reach and provide even greater value to cities and regions around the world.”
“Cities are playing a leading role in solving global challenges, from addressing climate change to eliminating traffic fatalities,” added Steven Cost, president, Hexagon’s safety, infrastructure & geospatial division. “Our partnership with Fujitsu can help cities put data to work to solve these pressing problems and meet sustainability and safety goals.”
The new global partnership builds from the companies’ work to solve urban sustainability challenges in Europe.
This includes efforts to better manage and understand the impacts of shared mobility services in Germany, including a project with the city of Munich.
The partnership was announced at HxGN LIVE Global 2022, Hexagon’s digital technology conference.
