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
We explore the topic of active learning through real-world problem solving, and how some universities employ this. Active learning has been shown to yield better results than typical lecture classes.
In this article we look at how K-12 schools are emphasizing diversity in their STEM programs.
This article looks at how some universities are addressing the lack of diversity in STEM graduates. STEM diversity has been proven to drive innovation.
People have been feeding sensor data to simulations for years. How are Digital Twins different? This post explains the key difference between the two scenarios and where companies
The STEM skills gap is growing quickly. Yet, many engineering colleges still employ a weed-out curriculum. This post explores this issue in greater detail.
Many companies are going through the transition from developing mechanically oriented products to smart, connected ones. Overall, that transition includes a sea of changes, many of them challenging. This includes adding the organizational capability to develop embedded code, electrical systems, or rigid-flex electronics. One of the easier adjustments, however, is implementing an Internet of Things
This article reviews how the PTC Digital Twin, created with Integrity Modeler, SySim, and Thingworx, can digitally prototype a smart, connected product and its IoT platform during the design cycle.
