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

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.

Are Digital Twins Really New?

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 Rising Demand for Routed Electrical Collaboration

The design of harnesses isn’t always the highest priority in the development of smart, connected products. Yet, errors in their design can have a longstanding detrimental effect. In this post, we look at designing them concurrently and collaboratively instead.


Harness Design: On the Critical Path

In this post, we’re going to look at the timing of the development of harnesses, the needs of modern engineers to support concurrent harness design, and the technology capabilities needed to enable that change.
