Threedy GmbH and Siemens cooperate on visual computing platform for immersive experiences

Sidrive IQ will combine IIoT and 3D data resulting in digital content that empowers customers to understand drive systems better and resolve faults more efficiently. 

The cooperation of Threedy and Siemens enriches Sidrive IQ - the digital platform for drive system & solutions of Siemens - with the decades of know-how converged in Threedy’s visual computing platform instant3Dhub. Integrating a range of functionalities into one seamless solution, Sidrive IQ will combine IIoT and 3D data resulting in digital content that empowers customers to understand drive systems better and resolve faults more efficiently.
“We are progressively adding features to our digital platform Sidrive IQ – and with this also to our drive systems, solutions and services. Combining immersive experiences with IIoT-capabilities is a critical differentiator for the human-machine interaction because to a large extend it is people who eventually interact and act with AI-based insights and digital content in daily business operations. The cooperation with Threedy further completes the ambition to serve a holistic and user-centric experience,” states Sebastian Winkler von Mohrenfels, Head of Digital Business of Large Drives Applications. 
The integration of Threedy’s visualization service will give users access to visual digital twin information that usually has been only a domain of the engineering department. It tackles the requirements of industries: custom yet dynamic 3D data composition, automated transcoding and scalable visualization while retaining the original meta data used along the life cycle from product design to operations and service support.
“3D and XR applications, especially collaborative ones, offer their maximum value when the 3D visualizations are integrated with live business data in a highly dynamic manner. The cooperation with Siemens, and particularly the integration of instant3Dhub into Sidrive IQ, offers exactly this, as part of a state-of-the-art IIoT solution”, added by Christian Stein, CEO Threedy GmbH. 
SIDRIVE IQ is a holistic IoT-solution and services for smart fleet management of drive systems & solutions. With SIDIRVE IQ reliability, performance and serviceability of drive systems are holistically manageable throughout the product lifecycle. This means, the drive system is not limited any more to its natural physical boundaries and linear purpose in the operations process. It is extended by automated capabilities of AI, digital content and enabled virtual collaboration - anytime, anywhere. This translates into leverage on operational risk exposure, asset life-time extension and eventually an impact on financial performance. For more information:
