A digital revolution will drive Rolls-Royce’s pioneering IntelligentEngine vision which was launched yesterday at the Singapore Airshow.
With more people flying than ever before and an increasing demand for more efficient travel, Rolls-Royce has defined a vision for the future of aircraft power that will help deliver travellers more reliably and more efficiently than ever before.
The IntelligentEngine vision is based on a belief that the worlds of product and service have become so closely connected that they are now inseparable, thanks to rapid advancements in digital capability. The IntelligentEngine vision enables Rolls-Royce to find new ways of pioneering power, whether that is through its engines installed today, through its future UltraFan® engine design, or even through the hybrid-electric concepts of the future.
By the end of this year Rolls-Royce will be set to receive more than 70 trillion data points from its in-service fleet each year. Harnessing the power of this data is central to delivering the IntelligentEngine and developing an engine which is connected, contextually aware and comprehending.
Rolls-Royce launched the R2 Data Labs in December 2017 to tackle challenges just like these. Using advanced data analytics, industrial Artificial Intelligence and machine learning techniques R2 Data Labs develops data applications that unlock design, manufacturing and operational efficiencies within Rolls-Royce, and creates new service propositions for customers.
Decades ago, the Rolls-Royce service model was based around the simple repair and fix of broken engines. Then, as data became increasingly available, it was able to introduce the industry-changing TotalCare® service which drew on Engine Health Monitoring data to help manage and schedule engine repair. Now Rolls-Royce is looking to deliver another revolution in customer service by building on today’s advancements in the digital world.
