NVIDIA Omniverse not only accelerates complex 3D workflows, but also enables new ways to visualize, simulate, and code the next frontier of ideas and innovation. Integrating complex technologies such as ray tracing, AI, and compute into 3D pipelines no longer comes at a cost but brings an advantage. Enabled by Pixar’s Universal Scene Description (USD), it brings seamless collaboration and enhanced performance to today’s existing 3D workflows.
Jensen Huang, CEO of Nvidia, said that the Omniverse is built on Nvidia’s entire body of work, letting people share virtual 3D worlds that obey the worlds of physics. “The science fiction metaverse is near,” he said in his keynote speech. “One of the most important parts of Omniverse is that it obeys the laws of physics.”
At Numorpho Cybernetic Systems (NUMO), we plan to utilize Omniverse to be:
- the interactions layer for our innovation workflow (MANTHANTM) to enable coordinated agile development of physical products and their digital counterparts (INNOVATE),
- the backbone to create dynamic blueprints using our reference architecture, the Digital TwineTM for process automation that would enable an end-to-end holistic view of all activities up-stream, mid-stream and down-stream (AUTOMATE),
- the information bus for our Tendril ConnectorTM that integrates data using different protocols like API gateways, service meshes and microservices to enable pertinent data transfer (INTEGRATE), and
- the coordinator for our multi-modal intelligence engine the TAU Codex TransformerTM that would aggregate information from multiple inference engines to enable actionable intelligence (ENACT).
This will enable the appropriate pull-push of data, 3D models and process information to build out the first platform for the Metaverse. Dynamic cyber-physical solutions can thus be composed with actionable intelligence. The Omniverse layer will aggregate product development (model) data with physical and material engineering needs (additive and digital manufacturing), built-up area visualization using IoT & AR/VR (production shop floor, infrastructure, transportation and mobility) and enable the seamless end-to-end compositions of digital threads and digital twins.
We shall call this platform, the Mantra M5TM platform. More information in subsequent posts.
