Luciad's visualisation technologies support live connections to dynamic sensor feeds in a 3D environment.

"This acquisition strengthens Hexagon's ability to deliver smart digital realities, enhancing our Smart M.App platform with 3D, 4D (real-time sensor feed integration) and 5D (dynamic analytics) capabilities," said Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén. "The ability to rapidly integrate sensor data in a visually compelling environment provides the geospatial location intelligence and situational awareness necessary for mission critical operations."

Luciad has over 100 highly-skilled professionals in 8 countries, with over 100,000 users of its technology globally.

Luciad will be fully consolidated as of today, operating within Hexagon's Geospatial division. The company's turnover for 2016 amounted to 16 MEUR.
