Digital Twin technology is the concept surrounding the creation of a digital "twin" or replica of a physical asset. Digital twins are interactive, artificial intelligence (AI)-based virtual models that serve as digital replicas of real-life objects and/or environments. The benefits of a Digital Twin is to provide an abstraction layer that allows for applications to interact with a device or devices in a consistent manner. The vision of a digital twin is that it follows the lifecycle of a device and the data associated with the device. Digital Twins will enable features like device simulation during development, integration of analytics and Machine Learning (ML) during deployment, and so on. The Reality of Digital Twins for IoT | Ian Skerrett - Medium

The Digital Twin can allow companies to have a complete digital footprint of their products from design and development through the end of the product life cycle. This, in turn, may enable them to understand not only the product as designed but also the system that built the product and how the product is used in the field. With the creation of the digital twin, companies may realize significant value in the areas of speed to market with a new product, improved operations, reduced defects, and emerging new business models to drive revenue. The Digital Twin may enable companies to solve physical issues faster by detecting them sooner, predict outcomes to a much higher degree of accuracy, design and build better products, and, ultimately, better serve their customers. With this type of smart architecture design, companies may realize value and benefits interactively and faster than ever before. Industry 4.0 and the digital twin | Deloitte Insights

Visualizing Data in Digital Twins with Unreal Engine | Webinar
Digital twins are 3D models of physical entities with live, continuous data updating functions and processes in real time. These models provide means for analyzing and optimizing structures. In this webinar, we demonstrate how Unreal Engine can be used to visualize this connected data. Ludwig Lovén from WSP introduces the Microsoft Azure Digital Twin (ADT) Link for Unreal Engine plugin, and provides an overview of the accompanying sample project. He then dives further into the plugin to explain how AI and particle systems can be used for compelling visual feedback.

Virtual IoT | Digital Twins go open source: Eclipse Ditto introduction
Slides IoT Developer Survey: Digital Twins are getting more and more established as IoT service providers (alternatively calling them device shadows or device twins) and industrial IoT players adapt and promote the concept. This introduction has not the goal to fantasize about possible applications of the buzzword "Digital Twin" but to put flesh to the bones. Eclipse Ditto provides aspects of the Digital Twin pattern which from our point of view is used for abstracting from physical devices: turning devices into APIs with the help of their data * handling access control: who or what is allowed to interact in which ways? * dealing with Twin and live state * routing messages to/from devices * enhancing Digital Twins by integrating foreign systems - e.g. "gather all the spare parts for this Twin"

  • being able to search and select Twins via their metadata + reported state

How to Build a True Digital Twin with Self-Configuring Models Using the Material Handling Library
This advanced webinar demonstrates how you can create a self-configuring model using the Material Handling Library. 👉 Description and links below... Learn to create a model where all components are created directly from simple input data. On startup, the model loads all elements (conveyors, transporters, machines…) from the provided data, connects all the elements and lets products be manufactured. This is achieved with little coding, and using standard AnyLogic capabilities such as agent populations and flow-chart blocks. With such a setup, you can create true digital twins - as your model will always reflect your current data reality, without further manual refinements.

Double Vision: Using ‘Digital Twins’ To Pair Virtual And Physical Worlds
Being able to “see it before you build it” has long been a dream of manufacturers, but only recently has technology advanced to the point of making this a reality. Enter “digital twins”—virtual representations of products created with 3D design software, and another technology on Goldman Sachs Research’s “Outsiders” list of emerging ecosystems to watch. By building virtual models to test in reconstructed “real world” operating environments, companies can get an accurate picture of how their products will behave in the field, explains Goldman Sachs Research’s Joe Ritchie, ultimately enabling better performance through predictive maintenance and enhanced design. The potential goes beyond capital goods; as digital twins evolve, the data they gather could be combined with consumer information to create more targeted go-to-market strategies for industries like insurance and advertising.
