Take a deep dive into Digital Twinning. 'Digital Twinning is a process in which a physical object, system or a being is recreated on a virtual interface. During this stage, a fully developed digital replica is constructed in order for it to be used for future testing, development, and experimentation. Simply put, it is a digital replica or a clone that provides its manufacturers with the ability to interact with it on a digital platform instead of executing tests on the real physical “twin” in reality.' (Source)

In this Tech Tuesday event, we will briefly discuss the challenges in adopting the Digital Twin concept in practice and the process for selection of standards and Open Source solutions. In addition, we will provide an overview of the activities of some organisations around these topics in more detail. We will also discuss the challenges that arise with multiple standards for the implementation of Digital Twins.
