Digital Twin: Smart, Connected Products
Now digital models of products are being integrated with our physical reality. In the near future we will be using apps to visualize our physical products in a virtual avatar form whereby we can learn all sorts of stuff. For instance, imagine you want to see if your car is in good condition--pull out your car 3D visualization app and in real time see the oil viscosity, piston structural integrity, or tire pressure of your car. All this data will be personalized to your car using embedded sensors in the product. The beginnings of this digital twin strategy are starting to appear such as augmented maps. If you are curious to learn more about the Digital Twin strategy and smart, connected products check out PTC's CEO keynote talk at the LiveWorx conference in Boston. Definitely worth a look if you are interested in innovation, design, and product development.
