What is Digital Twin technology?

  • A digital twin is a digital representation of a physical asset or environment, such as a car, a bridge, or a building.
  • Digital twins learn, update, and communicate with their physical counterparts by exchanging data throughout the asset’s lifecycle using AI, machine learning, and IoT technologies.
  • Digital twins use real-time data, allowing stakeholders to monitor the performance and lifecycle of a project.
  • Cities around the world are now using technology to collect and interpret data that will make them more resilient in the face of climate change and other emergencies.
    • The Virtual Singapore project 3D digital platform lets users from different sectors create tools to solve the city’s complex challenges.
    • In India, the state of Andhra Pradesh’s new capital, Amaravati Smart City, is being created using a digital twin.

About Sangam: Digital Twin initiative

  • It aims to revolutionise infrastructure planning and design by integrating Digital Twin technology with AI, ML, and IoT.
  • Currently, in the proof-of-concept stage, it is distributed in two stages.
    • The first stage would be exploratory, followed by a practical demonstration of specific use cases.
  • In November 2023, Survey of India, National Mapping Agency, and Genesys joined hands for a 3D Digital Twin mapping program in India to aid the Smart Cities Mission, along with other schemes such as PM GatiShakti and SVAMITVA.
