Vectorform and Itron Partner to Demonstrate Mixed Reality for Industrial IoT at CES

Utilizing the Microsoft Azure Digital Twins Service, Vectorform enables Itron Idea Labs to simulate neighborhood improvements in a digital environment

Itron Idea Labs, which is innovating the way utilities and cities manage energy and water, will demonstrate mixed reality for the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this year.

Partnering with Vectorform and using a public preview of Microsoft® Azure Digital Twin Platform, the Itron Idea Labs team has created a virtual representation of the relationships between building materials, infrastructure and various sensor types in a downtown Los Angeles neighborhood. Using the Microsoft HoloLens, a user is able to virtually install sensors, change rooftop materials, alter traffic patterns, plant trees and experience the impact on every person, car, school and building in the simulated environment. Itron Idea Labs is among the first adopters of Microsoft’s Digital Twins service, which enables developers to build repeatable, scalable experiences from digital sources and the physical world. Itron will utilize this platform and Microsoft HoloLens to demonstrate the impact of virtual pilots at CES and Vectorform will be onsite to assist users as they experience the technology first-hand.
