The technology from Iotics in London combines over 200 data sources, combining interactions to create a networked digital twin of systems in the field. This supplies real-time event data from customers, suppliers and partners.
“Iotics’ technology is helping us realise our vision of placing our customers at the heart of everything we do, exploiting digital twin technology to deliver the best service and to enable our customers’ businesses,” said Jürgen Winterholler, Chief IT Digital Officer of Rolls-Royce Power Systems, headquartered in Friedrichshafen in southern Germany. The partnership began in May 2018 with Rolls-Royce Power Systems’ digital products and services, including the customer service tool Go!Manage.
The two companies have now signed an ongoing agreement starting within its rail power ecosystem. Having a digital twin of power units increases service life, proactive maintenance, enhanced performance and responsive service provision, reducing environmental impact at every level from engine to network. The Iotics’ operating environment and toolset enable interactions between infinite endpoints, with access to all data and controls, throughout their entire lives.
“This is a strong endorsement of our operating environment and toolset from one of the world’s most innovative and pioneering enterprises,” said Robin Brattel, CEO of Iotics. “Rolls-Royce Power Systems’ vision of the future of next generation customer service, enabled by ground-breaking digital solutions, is inspiring and precisely the sort of project Iotics’ technology was engineered to facilitate.”
