CSIRO has announced the launch of a new Mixed Reality Lab to apply “digital twin” techniques.
“By comparing a digital twin of a manufactured object against the original design, we can quickly, accurately and cost-effectively identify defects and map entire manufacturing processes across a global supply chain,” Bolger said in a statement.
“Defective components can be identified in real-time and corrected, while downstream processes can be adjusted to minimise the impact of delays.”
Data61’s Dr Simon Barry said the lab represented, “The future of smart factories, where the digitalisation of the full value chain will enable real-time situational awareness and lead to better decision making and planning.”
