LAS VEGAS — AWS is previewing an Internet of Things (IoT) product for companies to build digital twins of real-world systems, such as buildings, factories, and equipment.
AWS introduced its IoT TwinMaker to help developers integrate data from multiple sources, like equipment sensors, video cameras, and business applications, and combine the data to create a knowledge graph that models the real-world environment, according to the company last month.
The “vast majority of organizations” are unable to use digital twins to improve their operations due to “the work required,” AWS said.
AWS IoT TwinMaker is intended to give “many more customers” the ability to build applications that mirror real-world systems through digital twins to improve operational efficiency and reduce downtime.
AWS IoT TwinMaker is available in preview in several AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia); US West (Oregon); Asia Pacific (Singapore); and Europe (Ireland). Availability in additional AWS Regions is “coming soon.”
Carrier, Siemens, and Accenture are among the early customers and partners using AWS IoT TwinMaker.
AWS said there are no up-front commitments or fees to use AWS IoT TwinMaker, and customers pay for the AWS services they use.
