Metaverse will be a digital world that mirrors and simulates real machines,
factories, buildings, and entire cities and transportation systems. The
seamless integration of the real and digital worlds will empower people and companies
to solve real-world problems.
report explores the building blocks of the Industrial Metaverse, its use cases,
and the effects it will have on businesses, economies, and everyday life.
Moreover, it points out the challenges that decision-makers in businesses and
society face to enable this digital world – and how they can harness its
the Industrial Metaverse, businesses can develop sustainable products faster,
easier, and cheaper. They can use it to make machines, factories, buildings,
and entire cities and traffic systems more efficient, resilient, and
sustainable,” said Peter Körte, Chief Technology Officer and Chief Strategy
Officer of Siemens AG. “This research shows that building this digital world is
about leveraging and integrating powerful technologies. However, it requires,
at least as importantly, openness, collaboration, and strong ecosystems.”
The Industrial Metaverse will result from the evolution and convergence of technologies such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, and cloud and edge computing. A key building block of the Industrial Metaverse will be the digital twin, which simulates the behavior of its real-world counterparts and is already revolutionizing product development, infrastructure management, manufacturing, and training measures. Future digital twins will provide photorealistic simulations of the real world and enable real-time interaction between people and machines.
