SoftServe and Continental drive digitalization with OpenUSD and generative AI

Editor's Note: This post is part of In the omniversea series focused on how artists, developers, and businesses can transform their workflows using the latest advancements in OpenUSD and NVIDIA Omniverse.

Industrial digitalization is driving automotive innovation.

In response to the industry's growing demand for seamless, connected driving experiences, Weak servicea leading provider of digital services and IT consulting, worked with Continentala leading German automotive technology company, to develop Industrial copilota virtual agent powered by Generative AI allowing engineers to optimize maintenance workflows.

SoftServe helps manufacturers like Continental further optimize their operations by integrating Universal Scene Description, or OpenUSDframework in virtual factory solutions, such as Industrial Co-Pilot, developed in the NVIDIA Omniverse platform.

OpenUSD offers the flexibility and extensibility organizations need to realize the full potential of digital transformation, streamlining operations and driving efficiency. Omniverse is a platform of application programming interfaces, software development kits, and services that enable developers to easily integrate OpenUSD and NVIDIARTX rendering technologies into existing software tools and simulation workflows.

Discovering the benefits of OpenUSD

Continental's SoftServe and Industrial Co-Pilot combine generative AI and immersive 3D visualization to help factory teams increase productivity during equipment and production line maintenance. With the co-pilot, engineers can supervise production lines and monitor the performance of individual stations or the shop floor.

They can also interact with the co-pilot to perform root cause analysis and receive step-by-step work instructions and recommendations, leading to reduced documentation processes and improved maintenance procedures. These advancements are expected to contribute to increased productivity and a 10% reduction in maintenance effort and downtime.

in a Recent Omniverse Community Live StreamBenjamin Huber, who leads advanced automation and digitalization in the user experience business area at Continental, highlighted the importance of the company's collaboration with SoftServe and its adoption of Omniverse.

The Omniverse platform equips Continental and SoftServe developers with the tools necessary to build a new era of AI-based industrial applications and services. And by breaking down data silos and fostering cross-platform cooperation with OpenUSD, SoftServe and Continental developers enable engineers to work seamlessly across disciplines and systems, driving efficiency and innovation across their processes.

“Any engineer, no matter what tool they are working with, can transform their data into OpenUSD and then exchange data from one discipline to another, and from one tool to another,” Huber said.

Vasyl Boliuk, Senior Lead and Test Automation Engineer at SoftServe, echoed this sentiment and shared how OpenUSD and Omniverse, along with other NVIDIA technologies like NVIDIA Riva, NVIDIA NeMo and NVIDIA NIM microservices: Enabled the SoftServe and Continental teams to develop custom large language models and connect them to new 3D workflows.

“OpenUSD allows us to add any attributes or any metadata we want to our applications,” he said.

Boliuk, Huber and other representatives from SoftServe and Continental joined the livestream to share more about the potential these OpenUSD-powered solutions offer. Watch the replay:
