Siemens, which makes industrial automation and software, has announced an expansion of its partnership with NVIDIA to enable the industrial metaverse and increase the use of artificial intelligence-driven digital twin technology.

The first step in the collaboration will connect Siemens Xcelerator, an open digital business platform, with NVIDIA’s Omniverse platform for 3D-design and collaboration. The companies said this will enable an industrial metaverse with physics-based digital models from Siemens, and real-time AI from NVIDIA so companies can make decisions faster and with increased confidence.

Adding Omniverse to the open Siemens Xcelerator partner ecosystem will accelerate the use of digital twins that can deliver productivity and process improvements across production and product lifecycles, Siemens said. Tasks for the new platform include the ability to employ digital twins with real-time performance data; create industrial IoT solutions; leverage insights from analytics at the edge or in the cloud; and tackle engineering challenge through visually rich, immersive simulations.

“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,” said Roland Busch, president and CEO of Siemens AG. “Through this partnership, we will make the industrial metaverse a reality for companies of all sizes. 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.”

“Siemens and NVIDIA share a common vision that the industrial metaverse will drive digital transformation,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “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. The connection to Siemens Xcelerator will open NVIDIA’s Omniverse and AI ecosystem to a whole new world of industrial automation that is built using Siemens’ mechanical, electrical, software, IoT, and edge solutions.”

NVIDIA’s Omniverse is an AI-enabled, physically simulated and industrial-scale virtual-world engine that enables for the first time full-fidelity live digital twins. Used by more than 25,000 companies worldwide, NVIDIA AI is the intelligence engine of Omniverse in the cloud and autonomous systems at the edge.
