What is the Metaverse?
Recently, major companies have seized the topic of the metaverse. What is the metaverse? Let Facebook Facebook also change the company name to Meta? When explaining the reason for the name change, Zuckerberg pointed out that "Meta" comes from Greek, meaning "beyond" (beyond), and it also means that construction is endless. Metaverse (English: Metaverse), a single word composed of "meta" and "verse", refer to the Wikipedia website, Metaverse is the physical reality that uses AR augmented reality to correspond to the physical persistent virtual space/real VR fusion And create a collective virtual shared space. The Industrial Metaverse promotes the complex demands of the industrial 4.0 smart manufacturing factory affairs market, such as remote operations, simulated operations, and virtual reality of smart manufacturing system software. The high degree of digitization of factories can use simulation technology to greatly reduce labor time costs and manufacturing resource costs. Waste, Industry 4.0 is a virtual-real integration system Cyber-Physical System-CPS, which allows the manufacturing industry to have the motivation and inherent advantages to create a metaverse.
The term metaverse first came from the work "Snow Crash" published by American novelist Neal Town Stephenson in 1992. In this novel, the Metaverse is a collective virtual shared space that breaks the barriers between the virtual world, the real world, and the Internet. By wearing goggles and other devices, one can enter the virtual world of the Metaverse with a virtual identity. The oasis concept in the movie "Ready Player One" released in 2018 is to give a clearer imagination to the Metaverse.
The Metaverse is comimg! Where are the challenges and opportunities of PLC for Longzhong?
The application of Digital Automation Industry 4.0 focuses on simulating the physical world with digital data, linking the virtual and real characteristics to create the key technology of the prototype of the industrial metaverse - AR and VR and other human-machine interface industrial applications. These are inseparable from Longzhong's professional PLC automatic control. Software system Engineering integration association. In fact, the application of PLC in AR has been around for a long time. For example, the automatic management of warehouses used to require manual records. Now, as long as you wear AR glasses, you can free your hands and use the reminders of the AR glasses to quickly find the location of the goods. The seat is time-saving and more efficient, and the anti-fooling system has also made a fairly complete mechanism through AR glasses. Siemens, a major PLC manufacturer in Germany, proposed the concept of digital manufacturing of Industry 4.0, and also focused on the digital technology of complex manufacturing systems. The integration of automation equipment, digital monitoring equipment, smart sensor networks, etc. hardware equipment needs to be programmable through PLC. The logic controller loads the control command program to connect the real world with the virtual world. With digital automation big data data processing, mixed reality AR/VR and high-speed network, AI machine learning, etc., the real automatic control system Linking engineering integration with virtual space can bring highly automated and digitalized production line management and technological process optimization to manufacturing machinery and equipment.
The concept of the metaverse relies on a large number of programs as support, and Longzhong has been deeply involved in PLC programs for many years. Longzhong has accumulated quite mature and rich experience in the planning, writing, updating and maintenance of automatic programs. Adhering to professional and high-quality services in the automatic control industrial automation industry, we continue to strengthen our own industry. We look forward to creating a more different Longzhong in the concept of the metaverse, and are also ready to cooperate with this emerging industrial metaverse Let's go together.
