Hexagon Adds Speed, Scalability and Automation to Digital Twin Creation With the Acquisition of LocLab

By GeoConnexion - 1st March 2023 - 09:07

Hexagon AB announced the acquisition of LocLab, a provider of 3D digital twin content creation. LocLab’s proprietary technology, enabled by a high degree of automation using proven workflows and artificial intelligence, allows the cost and time-efficient creation of digital twins. LocLab’s in-house developed toolchain can leverage several data input formats to balance speed, cost and accuracy – such as terrestrial videogrammetry, survey data and point clouds – but only requires photographs or videos at minimum. Videogrammetry is a highly scalable method that comes in handy when survey accuracy is not needed and speed is preferred. Whether creating 3D models of machines, buildings and manufacturing facilities or large scale areas such as transportation networks or entire cities, the AI software compares detected objects with LocLab’s vast object library of 3D elements to semi-automate the creation of a semantically enriched 3D model.
