Siemens Digital Industries Software and CEA-List, a technological research institute focused on smart digital systems research, this week announced the signing of a deal to collaborate on research to further extend and enhance digital twin capabilities with AI and explore greater integration of embedded software on both virtual and hybrid platforms.
The research collaboration will bring together the two organizations’ combined industry expertise with the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio and CEA-List’s toolset to help break down the barriers between electronics design, software development, and mechanical engineering disciplines using digital twin technologies, according to a release from the two organizations.
This is expected to help customers to reduce the time and cost of verification and validation and to drive significant improvements in product quality and accelerate time to market across the full electronics systems product lifecycle, from architectural exploration to design and development. The research also is expected to further explore the use of digital twin technologies for autonomous driving, smart robotics and health domains.
“With the strong increase in electronics and software content of products and systems, there is a clear need for multi-domain, multi-fidelity system simulation solutions to relieve multiple design and verification challenges,” said Jean-Marie Brunet, VP and general manager of the Hardware Assisted Verification Division at Siemens Digital Industries Software. “We share a vision with CEA of an even more comprehensive digital twin and believe we can implement this vision through the power of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio because it covers everything from electronic design automation software and hardware tools to system, sensors and multi-physics simulation software.”
Alexandre Bounouh, CEO of CEA-List, added: “We believe that the Siemens and CEA-List digital twin research roadmap can offer best in class tools for generating rapid immersive and functional digital twins enhanced with artificial intelligence. This can certainly boost the competitiveness of companies by integrating digital twin technology early to innovate in their products and processes while keeping humans in the loop and reducing their environment impact.”
Siemens Digital Industries Software helps organizations of all sizes digitally transform using software, hardware and services from the Siemens Xcelerator business platform.
