Siemens is expanding its partnership with NVIDIA to enable the industrial metaverse and increase the use of AI-driven digital twin technology.
The two companies say they can take industrial automation to a new level by expanding the use of AI-driven digital twin technology, and the first step in 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.
By connecting these two platforms, Siemens and NVIDIA will use Siemens’ physics-based digital models and NVIDIA’s real-time AI to drive the industrial metaverse, allowing companies to make more informed decisions. It says that it will be possible to do it quickly.
In addition, adding Omniverse to the open Siemens Xcelerator partner ecosystem speeds up the adoption of digital twins, improving productivity and the process of the entire product lifecycle.
With this addition, enterprises of all sizes will be able to use digital twins to generate real-time performance data.
In addition, companies create innovative industrial IoT solutions, gain actionable insights from edge or cloud analytics, perform visually rich and immersive simulations, and unrealized engineering challenges. You will be able to deal with.
Roland Bush, President and CEO of Siemens AG, said:
“Through this partnership, companies of all sizes will enable the industry metaverse.
“For over a decade, our digital twin technology has increased the productivity of our customers in all industries and has today provided the industry’s most comprehensive digital twins.
“Connecting the Siemens Xcelerator to Omniverse enables a real-time, immersive metaverse that connects hardware and software from the edge to the cloud with a wealth of data from Siemens software and solutions.”
The two companies say the partnership will bring a metaverse to the industry by combining complementary technologies and ecosystems.
Siemens states that it is in a unique position where the real world and the digital world, information technology and operational technology intersect.
Its Xcelerator platform connects the mechanical, electrical, and software domains throughout the product and manufacturing process.
In addition, the Siemens Xcelerator platform enables IT and OT integration.
NVIDIA Omniverse is an AI-enabled, physically simulated, industrial-scale virtual world engine that provides live digital twins with full fidelity. The company states that this is the first in the industry.
Over 25,000 companies around the world are using NVIDIA AI, Omniverse’s intelligence engine in the cloud and an autonomous system at the edge.
According to NVIDIA, Omniverse and AI are the best computing engines to represent Siemens Xcelerator’s comprehensive digital twins.
“Siemens and NVIDIA share a common vision that the Industrial Metaverse will drive digital transformation.
“This is just the first step in collaboration between our customers and all parts of the world’s manufacturing industry to realize this vision,” said Jensen Huang, NVIDIA Founder and CEO.
“The connection to Siemens Xcelerator opens NVIDIA’s Omniverse and AI ecosystem into a whole new world of industrial automation built using Siemens’ mechanical, electrical, software, IoT, and edge solutions.”
