Porsche is introducing a brand-new concept called Porsche Digital Twin that matches physical cars with a virtual copy, so that an algorithm can predict when maintenance will be needed on that specific model. This concept is set to help drivers better identify when their real-world vehicle needs service based on their driving style and other factors.
The advanced system boasts the ability to detect faults before they even appear, which could help to save drivers from costly problems that will only become more aggravated with time. This feature involves embedding sensors into a vehicle and allowing the system to record data and monitor the car's performance in the background.
Porsche is set to launch the first digital twin next year and half of Taycan owners have signed up for a pilot program for monitoring the EV's air suspension system.
