Hexagon unveils life-of-mine smart platform

Swedish software and autonomous solutions company Hexagon has launched a platform that connects sensors, software, infield apps and cloudware called "Power of One".

Hexagon said the platform, launched at its event HxGN Live in Las Vegas, can "connect the mine to the boardroom", via a single onboard ecosystem comprising a smart computer, antenna and display.

Power of One uses data from multiple sensors in a consolidated software architecture, the platform helps mines to become situationally aware, self-learning and autonomously connected.

"The Power of One platform is a landmark enabler for next-generation autonomy," said Nick Hare, Hexagon's Mining division President. "It offers mines a uniquely intelligent approach based on open architecture to autonomously connect key mining ecosystems, such as exploration, planning, drill and blast, material movement and mine monitoring.

"It's the scalable, platform-agnostic answer to challenges previously addressed by point solutions and multiple vendors." 

Rob Daw, Hexagon's Mining division Chief Innovation Officer, described the platform as disruptive. 

"For the first time, one technology partner connects the mine to the boardroom via a single onboard ecosystem comprising a smart computer, antenna and display," said Daw. "This marks the fulfillment of a commitment to connect all parts of a mine and for the industry, it points the way to a safer, more productive and sustainable future."
