Will the digital twin concept transform the automotive industry?


Grape Up recently started working for a well known worldwide sports car brand from Europe. We are working together with them on one of their most challenging R&D projects.

The company decided to build their own IoT platform and test some fascinating concepts, that hopefully will make the life of their customers much easier. Grape Up’s responsibility is to work on applying the Digital Twin concept, recently recognized by Gartner in their report “Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2018”.

So what is a digital twin? It is a virtual model of a service, process or product. It is based on pairing physical and virtual worlds. It allows to monitor and analyse real life data, conduct simulations and thanks to that, develop new functionalities and make predictions for the future. Where does the data come from? Smart components are gathering data and those components are connected to a cloud-based system which processes all the sensors signals.
