Siemens is expanding its partnership with NVIDIA to enable the industrial metaverse and increase the use of AI-driven digital twin technology.
The companies say growing AI-driven digital twin technology usage will help take industrial automation to a new level, and the first step in their collaboration will be to connect Siemens Xcelerator and NVIDIA Omniverse.
Xcelerator is an open digital business platform, and Omniverse is a platform for 3D design and collaboration.
Siemens and NVIDIA say connecting these two platforms will facilitate an industrial metaverse with physics-based digital models from Siemens and real-time AI from NVIDIA, allowing companies to make more informed decisions faster.
Further, adding Omniverse to the open Siemens Xcelerator partner ecosystem will speed up digital twin adoption, providing greater productivity and improvements to processes throughout the production and product lifecycles.
This addition will also allow enterprises of all sizes to use digital twins that generate real-time performance data.
Moreover, businesses will be able to create innovative industrial IoT solutions, get actionable insights from analytics at the edge or in the cloud and make visually rich, immersive simulations to address engineering challenges that have yet to become a reality.
“Photorealistic, physics-based digital twins embedded in the industrial metaverse offer enormous potential to transform our economies and industries by providing a virtual world where people can interact and collaborate to solve real-world problems,” Siemens AG President and CEO Roland Busch says.
