What are digital twins? An introduction to digital twin technology
As the term may suggest, digital twins are digital images of physical objects, such as industrial equipment and machines, vehicles, but also buildings and medical patients. The identical copy, called digital twin or digital twin model, offers a variety of opportunities in industrial applications that are advantageous for companies because they save enormous resources.
By using a digital twin concept, production processes can be optimized and problems such as autonomous driving detected and solved using existing data before they arise in physical reality at all.
