Digital Twin Technology - The Reinvention of Digitization

Traders Magazine | March 13, 2020

The history of creating a replica of physical body dates back to yester years when miniatures were built before the actual development of products or buildings. The process was proven to be quite effective in the management of the development process. This, in turn, facilitated the development of different technologies such as 3D modeling, CAD/CAM, etc. As technology keeps on evolving, the era of digital reinvention has dawned upon us. From miniatures to a digital replica, we have come a long way and still have a long way ahead of us. Digital twin can rightly be named as one of the greatest achievements in our endeavor of digitization. It gives a digital identity to a physical embodiment and helps in the process of assessment, development, performance monitoring, etc. In a precise way, it is designed to increase the effectiveness of the product or process. It has been assessed that large companies are already deploying the technology at a rapid pace. It is further anticipated to witness large-scale adoption over the next couple of years. The product can help these companies in achieving as high as 25% extra effectiveness with the use of digital twin technology. It ensures a connected and creative future of the organization.

Automotive manufacturers and transportation technology vendors are rapidly progressing us towards fully autonomous vehicles. But not all autonomous vehicles are the same and right now we’re nowhere near full autonomy. The Society for Automotive Engineers has defined six levels of autonomy from Level 0 to Level 5.

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden to Establish Trimble Technology Lab for Architecture, Engineering and Construction

Trimble ,KTH | June 04, 2021

Sweden'sKTH Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) has received a gift from Trimble to establish a state-of-the-art Technology Lab for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC). The lab will expand the university's leadership in training and research in 3D building design, digital fabrication and the sustainable built environment. Trimble's broadConnected Constructionportfolio enables all professionals along the project lifecycle to accelerate project processes—improving productivity, quality, transparency, safety and sustainability, while reducing waste. The Trimble Technology Lab will provide students enrolled in KTH's School of Architecture and the Built Environment hands-on experience with Trimble solutions. Applications of these solutions range from scanning buildings or sites, design and 3D printing of architectural building models and digital fabrication to implementing construction cost estimating and scheduling to improve productivity and reduce costs. Partnering with Trimble allows KTH to more fully integrate across its curricula the technological tools that are rapidly transforming how buildings and living environments are designed and constructed. "The School of Architecture and the Built Environment is very happy to establish this exciting, innovative collaboration with Trimble," saidMuriel Beser Hugosson, head of the School of Architecture and the Built Environment, KTH. "The new Trimble Technology Lab will support us in offering applied experience of cutting edge technologies to the next generation of civil engineers and architects during their studies. We look forward to many exciting developments in both education and research through our collaboration." "Sweden'sKTH Royal Institute of Technology is an outstanding addition to our network of labs around the world," saidTove Lindbland, business development manager, Trimble Sweden. "We believe the lab can play a significant role in providing students with greater opportunities to acquire hands-on knowledge and skills of advanced technologies that will allow them to make an impact in the future for construction in the region."
