HUGSI stands for Husqvarna Urban Green Space Index — a digital innovation initiative developed by Husqvarna in collaboration with The ambition is to help safeguard and improve maintenance of green spaces in urban areas. By applying computer vision and deep learning techniques on satellite images, HUGSI unveils insights about the size, proportion, distribution, and health of green space in urban areas.

Husquarna created HUGSI to raise the awareness about the value of urban green space among citizens, support city officials and politicians to make data informed decisions and facilitate the collaboration across industries and organizations to together make “smart and sustainable city” a reality.
