Siemens Digital Industries Software and French research institute CEA-List have signed a deal under which the two organisations will research the combination of digital-twin and artificial intelligence.
The Xcelerator portfolio will provide the foundation for applying tools developed at CEA-List to try to improve the links between electronics design, software development, and mechanical engineering. The aim is to reduce the time and cost of verification and validation and to drive improvements in product quality. Alongside this, the research will also explore the use of digital-twin technologies for autonomous driving, smart robotics, and healthcare.
“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. 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 EDA software and hardware tools to system, sensors and multi-physics simulation software,” said Jean-Marie Brunet, general manager of the Siemens hardware-assisted verification division.
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.”
