Urbanizing Smart Cities With Digital Twins

Digital twin (DT) is a rapidly growing concept that has gained traction as it can improve product designs, optimize performance at an industrial level, and create proactive maintenance services. This upgrading technology has started taking shape on an entirely new and different scale as it has become the pillar for futuristic smart cities. In the scenario of smart cities, digital twins work as virtual replicas of the city’s assets, such as buildings, road lighting systems, energy and grid capabilities, and mobility solutions. However, it is not enough to develop a third-dimensional (3D) model of these sources.
