Digital Twins will revolutionise the built environment
Recent advances in technology have enabled the creation of digital twins of cars and airplanes that can now be modelled, simulated and optimized before they even leave the drafting table. This progress is about to become reality for something as complex as whole cities. The Digital Twin Cities Centre will conduct cutting-edge research in eight different research areas, covering all aspects needed to develop large-scale digital twin technology, and to harvest the opportunities it brings in new approaches to urban planning & design, architecture and digital construction. To facilitate uptake and implementation for Sweden to spearhead the necessary digitalization of the built environment sector, a particular focus will be on knowledge transfer to industry and public actors.
