Digital twin: How can we understand cities and complex systems in a digital word?
A digital twin is a digital mirror, a sort of real-time visualization of connected sensors, vehicles and systems. Through the digital twin we can understand and control our environment as well as see how things are connected in new ways. A digital twin requires a lot of “clean” data, a multidisciplinary perspective in development of software solutions and a combination of planning, monitoring, simulation, control and visualization.
How can this contribute to tomorrow’s sustainable cities? In this breakfast presentation we will dig into the meaning of this concept and how we can make use of it when enabling smart cities. We will also look at some examples from different projects at RISE regarding digital twins in buildings and cities. We will look specifically on how we, by combining different forms of data into one, can create a context that will allow us to gain a much better understanding of the systems or entities we are exploring. After the presentation there will be demonstrations of different kinds of digital twins.
