Urban digital Twins
Digital Twins can be powerful tools to manage and plan our cities in a more sustainable way.
Simulate and visualize the city pulse
Urban Digital Twins are digital replicas of cities that allow us to simulate, predict and visualize the pulse of the city with layered data sources of buildings, infrastructures, utilities, businesses, and movement of people and vehicles.
In this very broad domain, we apply data science to the fields of urban planning and architecture. The team holds expertise in advanced geospatial data analysis, modelling and simulation, parametric modelling and computational design, and software development of decision support tools.
The Urban Digital Twins team can help municipalities to understand their data and get more value out of it. We can provide researchers with real world use-cases, development support for building prototypes and demonstrators. Our industrial partners can benefit from hands-on utilization of cutting-edge research as well as access to the academic ecosystem through networks and innovation projects.
