Amazon today announced Amazon Web Services (AWS) IoT TwinMaker, a new service designed to make it easier for developers to create digital twins of real-time systems such as buildings, factories, industrial equipment and product lines. With this, the company launched AWS IoT FleetWise, an offer that makes it apparently easier and more cost-effective for automakers to collect, convert and transfer vehicle data in near-real-time in the cloud.

“Digital twin” approaches to simulation have gained currency in other domains. London-based SenSat, for example, helps clients in the construction, mining, energy and other industries model locations for the projects they are working on. GE offers technology that allows companies to model the digital twins of real machines and track performance closely. And Microsoft Azure offers digital twins and project bonsai, which model relationships and interactions between people, places and devices in a model environment.

With IoT TwinMaker, Amazon says consumers can take advantage of pre-built connectors for data sources such as tools, sensors, video feeds and business applications to automatically build knowledge graphs and 3D visualization. IoT TwinMaker supplies dashboards to help visualize operational states and updates in real time, by mapping relationships between data sources.

Speaking of IoT FleetWise, it enables AWS customers to collect and validate data in a fleet of millions of vehicles. IoT FleetWise can apply intelligent filtering to extract only what is needed from connected vehicles to reduce the volume of data being transferred. In addition, it has tools that allow automakers to perform remote diagnostics, analyze fleet health, prevent safety issues, and improve autonomous driving systems.

‘The cloud is changing fundamentally [the automobile] AWS CEO Adam Selipsky said on stage at Amazon’s Re: Invent 2021 conference that the industry, including how vehicles are designed and manufactured, the features they provide, and how we drive. ,[Automakers] Designing vehicles fused with software connected to the sensor and the systems obtained on it [enormous] The amount of data. “
