How BMW is virtually producing its next-generation EVs with the help of NVIDIA Omniverse

Two years prior to the start of series production for the next generation of all-electric BMW Neue Klasse (new class) vehicles, BMW has already begun manufacturing them. BMW announced this week that it has opened the world’s first completely virtual factor in the NVIDIA Omniverse to produce its Neue Klasse EVs by making use of the advanced virtual computing platform provided by NVIDIA.

BMW uses NVIDIA Omniverse to begin distributing its next-generation EVs.

The NVIDIA omniverse platform, which makes use of artificial intelligence to enable virtual application development and operation in the metaverse, is essentially the closest thing to the real world.

A digital twin, as it is commonly referred to, is a game-changing technology that lets you create physically accurate, large-scale demonstrations that bring concepts to life in a novel way.

BMW reported at GTC it’s extending the utilization of the NVIDIA Omniverse to redo its creation organization, including its arranged EV plant in Debrecen, Hungary.

Despite the fact that development has recently started, and the new office isn’t supposed to deliver vehicles until 2025, BMW is now producing vehicles at the plant in the metaverse. The capacity to see practically continuously the way that the office will work will guarantee a smooth and proficient opening interaction.

According to Nedeljkovi, planning is the first step, and virtualization and AI are speeding up and improving BMW’s planning process. The platform makes it possible for BMW’s teams all over the world to collaborate in real time, speeding up decision-making and increasing productivity.

A factory demonstration was held by BMW and NVIDIA to demonstrate the power and effectiveness of planning AI-based EV facilities with the Omniverse platform.

A virtual planning session for the factory’s new body shop is conducted by BMW’s global planning team, Nedeljkovi, and NVIDIA CEO and founder Jensen Huang in the joint demonstration.

The team works together to find a solution after learning a new production concept that needed to be changed, such as the placement of robots. As they work, they visualize the process in real time.

At the point when the group found the ideal spot for the robot, it could run a reenactment, showing the part is in its place and functional.

The automaker’s virtual arranging adds to its “masterplan for the automotive production of tomorrow,” named the BMW iFACTORY. Last year, BMW introduced the production concept to emphasize digitalization in addition to eco-friendly and resource-saving methods.

As the automaker enters a new era, its Hungary plant, which is expected to open in 2025, will manufacture the company’s first next-generation Neue Klasse EVs.
