Digital twins, simulations of the real world in a digital counterpart, could be a game-changer and a time saver for the future of automotive, electric vehicles, smart cities, defence, and manufacturing. In this special report, Auto Futures talks with leaders in the field to define digital twins, and learn how they can help speed up future innovation.
What Are Digital Twins Good For?
The Digital Twin Consortium (DTC), a group from industry, government, and academia, is working on consistent vocabulary, architecture, security, and interoperability of digital twin technology. DTC has over 250 members and a variety of working groups for different fields.
“We facilitate and create working groups based on interest. Groups are highly collaborative,” says Dan Isaacs, Chief Technology Officer, Digital Twin Consortium.
