Siemens and Nvidia have extended their long-standing partnership to create new metaverse use cases for industrial customers, as well as augment existing AI-driven digital twin technology across the manufacturing sector.
The deal combines Siemens’ open digital business platform ‘Xcelerator’ with Nvidia’s 3D-design and collaboration tool ‘Omniverse’.

A modern approach to infrastructure management
The merger aims to create new use cases for what's known as the 'industrial metaverse', with physics-based digital models supplied by Siemens and real-time artificial intelligence (AI) from Nvidia technology.
Furthermore, Omniverse's inclusion in the open Siemens Xcelerator partner ecosystem will streamline the use of digital twins to drive productivity and process improvements across production and product lifecycles.
Notably, companies of all sizes will be able to employ digital twins with real-time performance data, create innovative industrial Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, and leverage actionable insights from analytics at the edge or in the cloud, the companies claimed.
