Digital Twins


Digital Twins

News: India will soon join the ranks of cities and countries such as Singapore, Yingtan in China, Dubai, Saudi Arabia and US states that have built Digital Twins to enhance their efficiency, coordination and governance.

What is a Digital Twin?

o A Digital Twin is a three-dimensional (3D) virtual representation of an object or system that delivers realtime insights into the performance, operation or profitability of a physical object—even a city. It is therefore essentially a virtual replica of a real city that can be used to improve its efficiency in several ways.
o For example, one can simulate the installation of mobile networks on specific rooftops and identify the obstructions within the specified parameters, thus saving time and costs.

Benefits of Digital Twin:

o It offers a model of urban planning and construction for future sustainable development that effectively combines innovations in digital technology with urban operational mechanisms and provides a feasible path for urban upgrading.
o It also promotes safer, more efficient urban activities and helps to create more low-carbon, sustainable environments.

Challenges of Digital Twin:

o Digital twins require a significant investment in hardware, software, and personnel, which can be a significant burden for many cities.
o Digital twins require a large amount of data to be collected and analyzed, which can be difficult to obtain in some cities.
o Digital twins are complex systems that require a high level of technical expertise to maintain and operate. This can be a barrier for cities that lack the necessary resources and personnel to manage digital twins.
o Digital twins can collect a large amount of sensitive data, which must be securely stored and managed. If not protected, it could be vulnerable to misuse or exploitation.
