Imagine trying something in a simulated space, a Pro-Pilot level of a project, where processes and things can be modeled to scale. Yes, a virtual replica (or a digital twin) holds the capacity to provide unprecedented solutions to the challenges that have long existed in the real world- be it in the field of medicine, manufacturing, mobility, or even smart cities. These are the dynamics within digital twin space that transcends imagination to reality.
Metaverse holds a promise of boundless opportunities for the world to translate ideas and imagination like never before. With effective simulation and digital replication of the real world, Web 3.0 and Metaverse ecosystem provides a unique way of prototyping without needing any physical resources.
While many businesses have already put this technology to practical use, there are still many who are yet to explore the promise it holds, especially the dynamics that exist within this exceptional realm of Digital Twin technology and Omni-Sensing Cloud.
Digital twin and Omni Cloud: Pieces of a jigsaw puzzle in the Metaverse-Web 3.0 ecosystem
An Omni Cloud is a space where a world-class interconnected network and superior data integrate with each other. It blurs the barriers between the various platforms until they merge together to create a seamless interoperable space, called the Metaverse.
A digital twin, on the other hand, is a virtual replication of a physical being, an object, a system, or a process. This space is an opportunity that examines all the variables and optimises a pragmatic and most efficient solution.
Now, each element in this realm is intricately detailed, owing to the volumes of data available through Omni Cloud (or Hybrid Cloud). This allows an accurate operational dynamic, that is it can be duplicated over its entire life cycle, from its creation to its retirement.
“Digital twins are becoming a business imperative, covering the entire life-cycle of an asset or process and forming the foundation for connected products and services. Companies that fail to respond will be left behind.”, Thomas Kaiser, SAP Senior Vice President of IoT.
Creating a Seamless Autonomous Mobility: An Example
Metaverse is a unique way for automotive manufacturers to enhance their design and development functions. Through digital twin technology, companies are able to create a virtual representation of the product and the digital avatar of the driver.
With all the systems simulated and monitored for every single parameter, data is gathered from the interior sensors based on interactions and modifications.
The data collected collaborates to improvements and design innovations that enhance product quality, leading to an absolutely Seamless Autonomous Mobility (SAM).
This increases the scaling efficiency of the operations while reducing the real-time costs of material and design choices. Autonomous mobility is an essential element of smart city design. With the adoption of digital twin technology and the application of Omni Cloud, developers can realise their long-term goal of sustainable and eco-friendly mobility design for the cities.
A Journey from Virtual to Real
Within the next few years, Metaverse promises to evolve- introducing all kinds of new opportunities in the design, development, and indeed reimagining processes across two realms of existence. Nevertheless, it falls to leaders in their respective sectors not to shy away from this revolution. We must embrace the change and seek out the opportunities that could accrue resilience and new revenue streams to the existing business models.
