On demand session – Hannover Messe: making industry smarter and more sustainable with autonomous processes

One of the fundamental challenges facing the world today is to make economic growth more sustainable.

For decades, scientists around the globe have warned about the ecological dangers of depleting natural resources and increasing carbon emissions. There’s no denying that, up to now, unsustainable business practices have contributed to these issues. But at Hexagon we believe that business and economic growth doesn’t need to come at the expense of our planet.

The smarter application of technology is the only answer. COVID-19 has accelerated automation in manufacturing, but to become more sustainable businesses need to move to the next stage in the industrial revolution: autonomy.

Autonomous systems offer unprecedented efficiency outcomes that are crucial to both businesses and our planet. Via optimal sensors and software, a digital thread enables data to be autonomously communicated throughout the manufacturing process for continuous feedback and improvement.

This is not only transformative for product development and production efficiency, but leads to greener processes and outcomes.

Hexagon is all about empowering an autonomous future. In my keynote at Hannover Messe 2021, I explore in detail how Hexagon’s autonomous solutions help manufacturers increase efficiency and productivity sustainably.
