Standard Based Digital Twins with Flexible IoT Solutions

Large, complex machines such as those used in the aerospace, oil and gas, shipping and automotive industries are often built to last decades.

Accurate, timely information is crucial for efficient long term use and maintenance, but data management systems become obsolete long before the machinery itself. The result is often expensive reengineering or clumsy workarounds. Eclipse Arrowhead’s Norwegian use case highlights how the potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) can be harnessed to make these investments future proof by guaranteeing continued optimised performance at a low cost.

Using common standards for this type of data is one key to cost-efficient monitoring and use of information. Common standards eliminate the need for converting or re-entering information into different computer systems throughout the life-cycle of a product – something that might otherwise occur when a product changes ownership or when a new organisation becomes involved in monitoring, maintenance or repair.

Watch this short video presentation to learn more about how you can use your existing CAD models together with device mounted sensors and Eclipse Arrowhead software to create a standard based digital twin – something that can be done in a matter of days, rather than months.

Eclipse Arrowhead’s Norwegian use case is a collaboration with software companies Jotne and Tellu as well as Ostfold University College and NTNU, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
