Hexagon wins magazine award for autonomous mine haulage solution

Tucson, AZ, 25 January 2022

Hexagon has won the Mining Magazine 2021 Fleet and Equipment Award for its autonomous mission management system. It marks the third time in six years that Hexagon has been honored by readers of the magazine. The annual awards celebrate excellence and a commitment to advancing the state of play in mining.

Recently launched in partnership with Liebherr, the autonomous mission management system orchestrates autonomous fleet and unmanned mine traffic movements throughout the mine for optimized autonomous haulage.

The one-platform approach to integrating multiple life-of-mine solutions empowers mines pursuing an autonomous future. Hexagon, a global leader in digital reality solutions, calls this the Power of One - a holistic, life-of-mine smart solution connecting sensors and software, infield apps and cloudware to empower digital transformation.
“Usability, scalability, state-of-the-art and next-generation technologies – all of this helped to deliver a solution worthy of this award,” said Andrew Crose, VP-Autonomous of Hexagon’s Mining division.

“The award validates our strategy of being OEM-independent but working directly with OEMs like Liebherr to develop the system. We thank Mining Magazine and its readers for the award, which makes all of us at Hexagon very proud.”

Hexagon won Mining Magazine’s Safety Award in 2017 and 2019 for its vehicle intervention system and operator alertness system, respectively. Hexagon was also shortlisted among the 2021 finalists in the safety and drill and blast categories.
