Ask anyone these days whether they’ve heard the terms IOT, Connected Products, AR, VR, Digital Twin and for the most part, the reaction will be yes.
Simply speaking, a digital twin is a virtual model of a process or product, which is paired to the physical world. This approach allows the analysis of data and creates a wide range of new technical and commercial opportunities.
Modeling a working product: the benefits are obvious What exactly is a digital twin? It is a simulated model of an actual working product in the field, informed by sensors mounted on the product...
We’ve discussed two definitions of the Digital Twin here, and both of them are equally important. Having a Digital Twin as a complete digital representation of the product is useful for consistency across different organizations within the company. There is less confusion around what the final product should be. When the Digital Twin works with sensor data, simulations can provide valuable insight into potential future problems that a product may encounter. Both of these Digital Twin concepts are sure to enhance electrical and electronic design in the future.
Because of its influence on weight and cost, accurately digitizing the wiring system is a priority when implementing a digital twin strategy in the automotive and transportation sectors. It’s also one of the most challenging aspects of this task.
