NavVis, a global leader in reality capture and digital factory solutions, today announced it is working on an integration with NVIDIA Omniverse, a platform for building and operating industrial metaverse applications, to enable streaming large-scale reality-capture data for factories. Combining NVIDIA Omniverse with NavVis’s mobile mapping system, NavVis VLX, and spatial data platform, NavVis IVION, the collaboration aims to ensure that Omniverse simulations can run not only with physically accurate, computer-designed models but also with accurate 3D representations of the ever-changing real world.
“We strongly believe in the promise of the industrial metaverse, especially when it focuses on addressing hard problems that real users are facing with advanced capabilities such as physics-based simulations and AI,” said Dr. Felix Reinshagen, CEO and co-founder of NavVis. “We see, however, that simulations cannot just rely on existing libraries of computer-generated models but need to be complemented with an accurate, large-scale, always up-to-date 3D representation of the real world to ensure actionable results. NVIDIA is a global leader in this new space of the industrial metaverse, and we’re very excited about this collaboration.”
“With NavVis connecting to Omniverse, users will be able to easily stream large-scale reality-capture data directly into their Omniverse simulations,” says Richard Kerris, Vice President of the Omniverse developer ecosystem at NVIDIA. “Running photorealistic and accurate 3D models of buildings, factories and even entire cities has never been more accessible for teams worldwide, improving operations and infrastructure planning.”
As part of this collaboration with NVIDIA, the NavVis IVION spatial data platform will be connected to NVIDIA Omniverse, enabling users to stream large-scale reality-capture data for factories into their Omniverse simulations via the Universal Scene Description (USD) framework. NavVis VLX and NavVis IVION are used to quickly generate and manage photorealistic, highly accurate 3D digital twins for all kinds of environments, ranging from smaller office buildings to factories with hundreds of thousands or millions of square meters.
