Digital Twin

An image says more than a thousand words.

A Digital Twin is the digital representation of an object, process or environment from the physical world in real time. The model provides at-a-glance insight into a live situation based on a stream of data and metrics. This way you get much faster access to the right situation to make complex, costly and even dangerous processes safer, more affordable and more viable.

Why a Digital Twin?

Digital Twin representations have a wide range of applications. A few examples:

  • Complex simulations: A Digital Twin helps to perform tests that would be very labour-intensive and, above all, costly with real equipment
  • Mapping infrastructure: A model can support the management of a building or display a production line, among other things, in the context of security
  • Utilities: A Digital Twin of a pipeline or rail network can display production problems in real time
  • Durability: Simulations with a Digital Twin show what is needed to work more energy-efficiently or to promote the lifetime and circularity of products
  • Prototypes: Evaluation of products in development or testing of modifications to these products or submitting them to external invoices
  • Applications of a Digital Twin

    Digital Twin applications go hand in hand with the incremental growth of Internet of Things (IoT) devices that generate large volumes of data. The most simple representation of a Digital Twin consists of a dashboard or 2D model, but in a later phase 3D presentations and even applications with Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR) are also possible.

  • For example

    Through AR, the engineers of a gas company can immediately see where a pipeline is going, what is going on, and what needs to be done to resolve a problem efficiently.
