- Siemens and Nvidia have teamed up in a new project to make industrial metaverse a reality.
- The two companies are expanding their partnership to increase the use of AI-driven digital twin technology.
- Siemens will connect its Xcelerator digital business platform, with NVIDIA Omniverse as the first step in the collaboration.
Leading industrial automation and software, infrastructure, building technology and transportation company Siemens has expanded its partnership with graphics processing unit giant Nvidia in a new project that will accelerate the process of making automated industrial metaverse a reality.
The companies are looking to increase the use of AI-driven digital twin technology by integrating Siemens’ Xcelerator digital business platform with Nvidia’s Omniverse, a platform for 3D design and collaboration.
As a result, the companies will be able to offer an industrial metaverse enabled by Siemens’ physics-based digital models and real-time AI from Nvidia, helping companies to make decisions faster and with a higher degree of confidence.
Combining Nvidia’s Omniverse with the open Xcelerator partner ecosystem will also allow businesses to use digital twins, thus delivering high p[roductivity and improved processes across the entire product lifecycles.
“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. Through this partnership, we will make the industrial metaverse a reality for companies of all sizes,” said Roland Busch, President and Chief Executive Officer, Siemens AG.
Siemens’ digital twin technology has been helping businesses from different sectors to boost their productivity and Busch claims it is the most comprehensive digital twin in the industry.
“When Siemens Xcelerator is connected to Omniverse, we will enable a real-time, immersive metaverse that connects hardware and software, from the edge to the cloud with rich data from Siemens’ software and solutions,” he added.
On the other hand, Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of Nvidia commented: “Siemens and NVIDIA share a common vision that the industrial metaverse will drive digital transformation. This is just the first step in our joint effort to make this vision real for our customers and all parts of the global manufacturing industry.”
Huang believes that connecting Nvidia’s Omniverse and AI ecosystem with Siemens’ Xcelerator will open it to a whole new world of industrial automation.
