Digital Twins in Assistive and Autonomous System Development

The 7th annual Mevea Seminar will be held as a virtual event on October 1, 2020.

  • Real use cases of Digital Twins by industry leaders
  • The role of Digital Twins in functional safety of Autonomous Vehicles
  • How does simulation technology benefit machine learning and autonomous systems

In the build-up to last year’s Mevea Seminar, we mentioned the Gartner Hype Cycle of Emerging Technologies and how Digital Twins had reached the Peak of Inflated Expectations. However, Digital Twin technology still holds its position at the top of the list in Gartner’s Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends in 2020.

Global industry leaders already leverage the potential of Digital Twins in their processes – and some of them will be joining us this year as speakers.

This year, the circumstances have obliged us to take a turn towards a virtual approach with out seminar – in essence, we are creating a Digital Twin of the event. The Virtual Mevea Seminar will take you on an educational journey into the very core of assistive and autonomous system development. You will hear about the various ways in which global corporations apply Digital Twins in their business, in addition to gaining insight into the role of this technology in machine learning.

By attending the event, you will gain a better understanding of how the use of Digital Twins is becoming a best practice in the era of shifting technological paradigm when it comes to faster, more efficient and advanced product development as well as machine autonomy.

On October 1st, the first-ever Virtual Mevea Seminar will take off, granting you access to information that until now has been restricted to a limited audience. We can now accommodate a greater audience, so it’s a great opportunity to anyone interested about Digital Twins. As always, our lineup consists of world-class companies and experts in their fields.

Join us and learn more about the practical applications of Digital Twin technology, wherever you are in the world.

Why should you attend?

  • Discover how industry leaders are gaining the edge with Digital Twin technology
  • Learn how Digital Twins are used in developing functional safety
  • Find out more about machine Learning and autonomous systems
