Siemens @ Future Lab at #FOSGoodwood. A sneak preview of the digital-industrial future.
Behind the scenes of industry, the digital and the physical worlds are coming together. It’s changing the game for everyone. And it’s changing the game for everyone from manufacturers to motorsports fans.
The FoS Future Lab at Goodwood was filled with eye-opening tech that can challenge what you think of as manufacturing. It showcased how the physical and digital worlds are converging, transforming business and enabling new ways of doing things that not long ago seemed impossible
Visitors were able to get up close to a real Maserati alongside its “digital twin” and learn how we’re helping to optimise supercars before they’re built. Experience our virtual model of Goodwood’s famous Hillclimb, created with drones that digitise every small detail. And discover the future of flight, with our eFusion electric plane on display with its virtual engineering twin.
Digitalisation starts with the design of a product. Maserati uses Siemens CAD software NX to virtually create, simulate and test their cars, significantly reducing the number of prototypes needed. In combination with Siemens PLM software, Teamcenter, the Maserati engineers manage their project collaboratively across various locations. The result: analysis and development times were significantly reduced.
At the festival of speed, we showcased how the virtual and real automotive production worlds came together by putting a Maserati car and it’s digital twin side by side. Visitors were able to get hands-on and experience the development of Maserati car components and simulation of production processes using Siemens NX software.
Read more about how Siemens' integrated solutions for manufacturing helped Maserati obtain a benchmark in the automotive industry.
Electric power will change not just change the automotive industry, but the aviation industry too. The new propulsion system in the eFusion electric plane is a multi-record breaker, holding a world record for it's power-to-weight ratio, with a Siemens developed electric drive weighing just 50kg and supplying a constant electric output of around 260kilowatts.
See what BBC Transport Correspondent Richard Westcott thought of his flight in our electric plane.
Experience for yourself how virtual worlds can be created directly from real environments. Using advanced 3D modeling software, created by our partner software company, Bentley Systems you can have a go at creating then exploring new realities, just by taking photographs on a tablet.
Find out more about Bentley Systems' reality modelling solutions.
Bentley Systems showcased their 3D Context Capture technology by digitally mapping the detailed landscape of the Goodwood Hillclimb. This world-famous stretch of driveway will be used by the latest automotive technology throughout the Festival of Speed. We’ve used the latest in reality modeling solutions and drone camera technology to create one example of how the digital revolution can build new, virtual worlds and provide performance improvements in ours.
Find out how we did it too! Watch our making of the film during Goodwood FoS, showing how Siemens and Bentley Systems’ technology is bridging the gap between the physical and digital worlds, enabling industry to become faster, more agile and better performing. Watch video >
Siemens has achieved a breakthrough in the 3D printing of gas turbine blades. For the first time, a team of experts has full-load tested gas turbine blades that were entirely produced using additive manufacturing. We asked visitors to compare first hand a traditionally cast gas turbine blade with the 3D printed equivalent.
Find out more about the process and the benefits of 3D printed components.
