Digital Twin - What is a Digital Twin?
A concept proposed in 2002 by Michael Grieves, a professor at the University of Michigan, that digitally recreates a real-world twin of goods and equipment. This allows digital twins to be used to improve subsequent models of a product by faithfully simulating defects and failures in a virtual space. Our company is applying the digital twin to the vast expanses of the real world by developing a platform that can be used by anyone, converting static and dynamic phenomena that occur in the real world into digital data.
SYMMETRY USE CASES
DEVELOPMENT OF DIGITAL TWIN TECHNOLOGY
We are developing a platform called SYMMETRY that can convert static and dynamic events occurring in the real world into digital data and make it available to everyone.
1. REALITY CAPTURE
LiDAR, drone, BIM/CIM and GIS data create a digital twin of the real world. Fast processing and visualization by VR, AR, smartphone, PC, and other platforms.
Real-time data from IoT sensors and satellite data are used to update digital twins based on real-world events.
Real-world simulations using digital twins that are updated in real time realize a smart society through automation and optimization of operations.
From July 2021, the platform "SYMMETRY Digital Twin Cloud" that allows you to easily connect open data on the Internet and APIs provided by each company to build digital twins for each field and use them in the field. Is now available.
