What is a Virtual Sensor?

Before we dive into virtual sensors, we need to cover some foundational concepts around the Digital Twin. With this technology, you have sensory data that you’re capturing from a product, and you’re feeding it into a simulation. The simulation will be running very fast, and will often be a systems simulation; a 1D simulation that

NX’s Adaptive UI: Big Deal or Not?

Siemens PLM announced that a new capability will be available in NX: an Adaptive UI. This marks the first use of machine learning in an MCAD application. Is it a big deal or not? We provide our perspective in this video.

What is Model-Based Software Development?

Model-Based Software Development is an initiative that helps ensure that new software runs on custom electronic hardware early in the development process. This post and video gives a good overview of this technology-led engineering initiative.
