In an era where technology constantly reshapes our understanding of the world, one innovation stands out for its potential in AEC, and manufacturing: the Digital Twin.
Far from being mere 3D models, these advanced digital replicas represent a leap into a future where the lines between physical and digital blur. In this exploration, I’ll uncover what Digital Twins truly are, their invaluable role in AEC and Manufacturing, and why they’re much more than just sophisticated visual representations.
What Are Digital Twins?
A Digital Twin is a digital replica of a physical entity, be it an object, process, or environment. This cutting-edge technology transcends the conventional boundaries of 3D modeling by integrating real-world data, often through IoT sensors, with technologies like AI and analytics to create simulations. These simulations are not static; they are dynamic, evolving with real-time data to predict performance, drive innovation, and enhance strategic technology trends.
