‘End-to-end solution’ said to provide an innovative new way for using, managing and sharing 3D digital twins.
LocLab, part of Hexagon, has launched LocLab Cloud, a platform designed to offer a secure ‘end-to-end’ solution for 3D digital twins, allowing management and monitoring of 3D models.
The platform is designed to provide asset owners, such as infrastructure providers, with comprehensive data, enabling predictive maintenance, scenario planning, sustainability analysis and overall improved decision-making. Users can interact with the 3D model, clicking on an object to access relevant data sets stored elsewhere, and receive live updates from on-site sensors.
LocLab Cloud can integrate data from various systems and sources. It is presented as an open platform, where partners can upload, update, access and share their own digital 3D content. Generic interfaces facilitate integration with existing systems, such as ERP, FM and IoT.
“Industry increasingly understands the benefits of data-enriched digital twins. But to fully realise their potential, users need an efficient platform that helps them securely store, manage and maintain these assets, ensuring real-time updates,” says Ilka May, CEO at LocLab. “LocLab Cloud is an innovative SaaS platform that enables clients to access and share data about their assets through a very intuitive spatial 3D environment.”
LocLab Cloud is built around Hexagon HxDR, a cloud-native platform for geospatial data, which powers Hexagon’s digital reality applications with storage, visualisation, collaboration tools and automated microservices for data processing. HxDR also powers Reality Cloud Studio, HxGN GeoCloud and the HxGN Content Program.
Hexagon acquired LocLab in December 2022
