Digital Twins

Tap into the power of OpenUSD and accelerated computing to develop and operate industrial-scale digital twins.

Digitalizing Industries and Transforming Scientific Discovery

Today’s enterprises are developing and operating physically accurate, AI-enabled digital twins with the power of NVIDIA Omniverse™ Cloud and NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise deployed on NVIDIA OVX™. This gives them the flexibility to design, simulate, and optimize products, equipment, and processes in real time before going to production.


The Benefits of Digital Twins

Accurate and trustworthy virtual testing, experimentation, and optimization are possible only if a digital twin simulation meets specific requirements.


A single source of truth for all virtual datasets


Physically accurate,
and obeys the laws of physics


Precision timed and perfectly synced to reality


Optimized by AI and
enables AI training

The Conference for the Era of AI and the Metaverse

Developer Conference March 20-23 | Keynote March 21

Don't miss these three upcoming digital twins sessions at GTC.

Building a Digital Twin of the German Rail Network to Deliver Next-Generation Railway Systems

Designing and implementing a large-scale digital twin that's comprised of thousands of kilometers of railway tracks, manifold infrastructure elements, and their direct neighborhood can be challenging. We'll show how we're tackling this challenge step-by-step, starting from exporting the HD map data we acquired from measurement drives to Omniverse down to the perception tasks inside the digital twin environment.

Driving the Future of Smart Factories With Cloud-enabled Digital Twins

The future smart factory is based on Industry5.0, which is adding concepts such as human-centric (helping workers with technology) and resilient (lead time reduction) to the extension of the 4th industrial revolution.

Creating Digital Twins and Simulations of Industrial Robotic Workcells for Smart Factories

RIOS designs, tests, and implements advanced AI-powered robots-as-a-service (RaaS) work cells to enable the smart factory of the future. The extreme diversity in the manufacturing industry often means a one-size-fits-all solution doesn't exist in commodity robotics; instead, customers require bespoke hardware and software to solve their challenges.

  • Making Production More Sustainable with the Industrial Metaverse

    • Cedric Neike, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG and CEO Digital Industries, Siemens AG

    Industries worldwide face countless challenges and obstacles, such as making production more efficient and sustainable, or overcoming supply-chain interruptions. The good news is that we have the technologies to solve global challenges, but we need to implement them quickly and at scale! No company or country can do this alone. Instead, we need to work in ecosystems. For over a decade, the Siemens digital twin technology has been helping companies across all industries boost their productivity, efficiency, and sustainability. Siemens and NVIDIA are now driving the digital transformation further by partnering to enable the industrial metaverse: photorealistic, physics-based digital twins offer enormous potential to transform our economies and industries by providing a virtual world where people can interact and collaborate to solve real-world problems.

  • How to Build a Digital Twin: Full Design Fidelity Visualization & Aggregation of 3D Data

    • Brian Harrison, Director, Software Product Management, NVIDIA

    Start learning how to build a digital twin in NVIDIA Omniverse. Building a digital twin is a complex process and there are multiple ways to get started. In this session, we walk through a generalized example of one of the most common challenges in large scale design and digital twin projects—being able to aggregate disparate 3D datasets (ie. CAD, design, animation, or simulation) from many software ecosystems, and visualize them in full-design-fidelity with no data loss or model decimation. Learn how NVIDIA Omniverse’s connected and collaborative Universal Scene Description-based workflows can help unite and unlock your data and see examples of Omniverse Connectors and understand what questions to ask to determine which are best for your workflow. Be sure to check out "How to Build a Digital Twin: Bringing in Robotics" as a follow-up session.
