The Digital Twin Centres will act as a virtual representation of up-to-date, real-life scenarios to facilitate and enhance simulations, testing, monitoring and integration of clean mobility solutions. This will lead to reductions in cost and an increase in efficiency. The Centres will be utilised by startups, MSMEs, researchers and academia for the development of indigenous automotive solutions with reduced costs and increased efficiencies. Micelio will serve as an industry partner for the initiative and help catalyse the clean mobility ecosystem for startups by facilitating the use of high-end, expensive and emerging technologies like AI & ML technologies, HIL system, and an integrated computational materials engineering simulation platform. The Centres have been set up, and customers can begin using them by March 2023; the joint facilities will be available at Pune, Bangalore and IIT Guwahati.
