Faithful, detailed digital representations are made of physical things and events occurring in the real world. These Digital Twins utilize our broad range of past expertise (including manufacturing and social infrastructure) to the maximum degree for high-level simulations that help reproduce the past and predict the future.
Digital Twins leveraging on-site expertise
The real world is represented in detail in a virtual space. Data analysis and system monitoring is performed to predict abnormalities, failures, and other issues; prevent their occurrence; and avoid downtime. Furthermore, simulations can be used to forecast the near future.
Digital representations of on-site devices, products, and real-world events in suitable data models are needed to visualize and analyze the changing on-site circumstances. We must select data that will help resolve on-site issues, and determine how to collect and analyze this data.
Toshiba builds and offers extremely useful Digital Twins based on our actual, on-site experience, including the manufacturing, operation, and maintenance of a wide range of devices and products.
Reproducing the real world,
using AI technology to link human intentions and situations
In addition to connecting equipment, devices, and products, SPINEX also links human users’ intentions and situations for Digital Twins that are more useful in work sites.
With SPINEX, the IoT supports communication between people as well as things. It links AI with voice, image, video, and other recognition technologies developed over many years by Toshiba.
Connecting Digital Twins to form a Digital Twin Economy and greatly transform business and society
Toshiba strives to mutually link Digital Twins with embedded AI technology on the global scale, from manufacturing sites to energy, social infrastructure, logistics, distribution, building equipment, and a wide range of other industrial fields. In this way, we aim to form a Digital Twin Economy and greatly transform business and society.
By connecting multiple companies and industries, we hope to create a more agile, efficient society.
