About this Event
The upcoming roundtable session offers a comprehensive exploration into the dynamic convergence of plant simulation, artificial intelligence (AI), digital twins, augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) technologies in advanced manufacturing. As industries across the globe continue to embrace digital transformation, the integration of these cutting-edge tools has become a cornerstone for achieving unprecedented levels of operational excellence and innovation.
The session will bring together researchers, and practitioners from Bosch Australian Manufacturing Solutions (BAMS), UniSA’s Centre for Industrial AI (IAI) and UniSA’s Australian Resarch Centre for Interactive and Virtual Environments (IVE) fostering a multidisciplinary dialogue that delves into the relationships between these technologies. Attendees can expect to engage in discussions, workshops, and practical demonstrations that highlight the transformative potential of these technologies.
Plant simulation lies at the heart of efficient process optimisation, enabling stakeholders to create virtual replicas of complex systems and explore diverse scenarios in a risk-free environment. Coupled with AI, these simulations can leverage vast datasets to optimise plant operations, streamline decision-making, and enhance productivity. The incorporation of digital twins takes this concept even further by creating real-time, data-driven replicas of physical assets, enabling continuous monitoring, predictive maintenance, and informed strategies for sustainability.
AR and VR technologies contribute a unique layer of interactivity and immersion to this ecosystem. Through AR overlays, plant personnel can access real-time data and instructions, enhancing on-the-job training, troubleshooting, and remote collaboration. VR, on the other hand, facilitates immersive training experiences, enabling individuals to simulate complex tasks and scenarios before encountering them in the physical realm.
Collectively, these technologies represent a powerful symbiosis that has the potential to redefine industry practices, drive innovation, and address the challenges of an ever-evolving global landscape. The roundtable discussions will touch upon topics such as data integration, model accuracy, ethical considerations, scalability, and the role of human-machine interaction.
By attending this session, participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the intricate interplay between plant simulation, AI, digital twins, AR, and VR. They will be equipped with insights to harness the full potential of these technologies, revolutionising their industries, and contributing to a more efficient, sustainable, and resilient future.
Refreshments will be available upon arrival.
Registration from 8:30am and roundtable beginning at 9.00am.
