The industrial metaverse will save Renault 320 million euros by 2025

Published

The Renault Group is launching the first Industrial Metaverse, which the automaker expects to deliver €320 million in savings by 2025, a 60% reduction in vehicle delivery times, a 50% reduction in the carbon footprint of vehicle manufacturing and a 60% reduction in warranty costs.

The Renault Group is thus accelerating its digitalization with the first Industrial Metaverse. According to the company, today already 100% of production lines are connected to the network (8,500 pieces of equipment), 90% of supply chains are constantly monitored, and 100% of supply chain data is hosted in the metaverse of the Renault Group, a real copy of the physical world controlled in real time.

According to the company, the use of digital technologies through participation in the Industry 4.0 program since 2016 has already provided the group with savings of 780 million euros. By 2025, this will save another 320 million euros in various costs, to which will be added 260 million euros in savings on inventory.

“One billion data is collected daily at the industrial facilities of the Renault Group. The Metaverse provides real-time monitoring that increases the flexibility and adaptability of industrial operations, as well as the quality of production and supply chain. The Renault Group is becoming a pioneer in this sector,” said Jose Vicente de los Mozos, Industrial Group EVP (employee value proposition manager).

Everything starts with data. In order to collect data from all its industrial sites, the Renault Group has developed a unique data collection and standardization solution, a platform for collecting vast amounts of data to be used in the industrial metaverse and thus provide leverage to improve the efficiency of production processes in real time. This solution is currently being sold to other industry players in partnership with ATOS under the name of the [email protected] project.

The Renault group then modeled its physical assets on digital twins. Each plant has its own copy in the virtual world. Like factories, the supply chain has its own digitized universe. The use of digital twins is complemented by supplier data, sales forecasts, quality information, as well as exogenous information such as weather or traffic, etc., as well as artificial intelligence to develop predictive scenarios.

Accelerating this digital transformation is made possible by the convergence of advanced technologies (cloud, real-time, 3D, big data, etc.). According to company representatives, the Renault Group has developed a unique platform for the fusion of technologies necessary for the sustainable operation of digital twins and their ecosystems.

Patrice Haettel, VP of Industrial Strategy and Engineering, concluded: “Our industrial metaverse is unique and allows us to activate previously unseen levers of efficiency and productivity for the benefit of people and the environment. Group-wide data management allows us, for example, to monitor energy consumption in detail across all our industrial and non-industrial facilities, and especially to optimize it in real time when the plant is not running.”

Intel wants to release a processor with more than a trillion transistors by 2030

Intel is going to create processors with more than a trillion transistors in less than 10 years.

At the IEDM 2022 event, the company published nine research papers on future developments and plans. In particular, it describes new 2D materials for transistors, a new 3D packaging technology that will reduce the performance and power gap between chiplets and single-chip processors to an almost imperceptible range, and so on. There is also information about Intel’s plans to release processors with more than a trillion transistors by 2030.

Intel is betting heavily on a new 3D packaging technology for Quasi-Monolithic Chips (QMC). The bottom line is that QMC aims to offer almost the same performance as interconnects used in monolithic chips. QMC is known to be a new sub-3 micron pitch hybrid interconnect technology that results in a 10x increase in power efficiency and performance density compared to Intel designs presented at last year’s IEDM. The 10 micron step approach was described last year, and even that was already a 10x improvement over current technologies. That is, Intel, at least on paper, was able to achieve a 100-fold improvement in energy efficiency and density in just a few years. In addition, QMC also allows multiple chips to be stacked vertically on top of each other.

Interestingly, the rate of increase in the density of transistors in the foreseeable future, according to Intel’s plans, will approximately correspond to Moore’s law. At the same time, prices for semiconductor products will continue to grow.

Apple “runs” from China. The company accelerated the process of transferring production facilities outside the Celestial Empire

Apple runs from China The company accelerated the process of

Amid ongoing quarantine measures in China due to COVID-19, Apple has accelerated its plans to expand production outside the Middle Kingdom.

Now Apple is most interested in India and Vietnam, where the company already has production facilities, and hence established logistics. In addition, major Apple partners are located in Vietnam, including Luxshare and Inventec, who assemble AirPods and HomePods.

Of course, the diversification process will take a long time, because, firstly, the conditions in China are still unique in many ways, and secondly, Apple has a very developed network of manufacturing partners there, and first of all, Foxconn with its huge factories. But as a result, as expected, Apple will move up to 40% of production from China.

Recall that due to recent production shutdowns in China amid outbreaks of COVID-19, the Cupertino giant will release 15-20 million iPhone 14 less than planned, that is, it will lose an impressive amount.

China plans to build a base on the moon by

While the United States has finally begun the first phase of the Artemis program, which is expected to return astronauts to the moon in 2025, China, according to recent data, plans to build a base on the moon at almost the same time.

China plans to build a base on the moon by 2028

As part of the current plans of the Celestial Empire, they want to create a base on our natural satellite by 2028. But this means that it will have to start building much earlier.

The station will be powered by a nuclear reactor.

We are currently developing a new system that uses nuclear energy to meet the long-term energy needs of the lunar station.

chief developer of China’s lunar exploration program Wu Weiren

What will be the Chinese lunar base is not yet clear, but no one has yet said that it will be an object intended for any long stay of people there. It is known that we are talking about a landing module, a kind of bunker, a lunar rover and an orbital station.

Previously, there was also information that the power of a nuclear installation to power such a base could reach 1 MW.

Earlier, the US also talked about placing a nuclear installation on the Moon by 2030. Thus, taking into account the accelerating race for the exploration of the Moon, in 10 years there really can be two bases there, albeit not yet designed for long-term residence of astronauts.
