Joint Workshop presents progress on Digital Twin City Platform

The Digital Twin Cities Centre (DTCC) and GATE institute hosted a joint workshop to present the ongoing work within Research Area 0 - Digital Twin Platform.

DTCC has been up and running for almost one year which presented a good opportunity to show the impressive the progress that has been on developing the Digital Twin Platform. The open platform supports all research and communication activtities at the centre by integrating, facilitating, and visualizing data, methods, and workflows. Reseachers at DTCC and the GATE institute in Sofia (Bulgaria) collobarate closely in different research and development projects to answer two main research questions:

  • How should a digital twin city platform be designed to support and integrate a heterogeneous collection of data sets, methodologies and use-cases?
  • How can the digital twin city platform provide an automated process to generate all data sets required by the supported methodologies and use-cases from raw data?

The following presentations are now available on the DTCC Youtube channel:

Anders Logg (DTCC), LOD1 Mesh Generation in DTCC Core

Andreas Mark (DTCC), High Performance Urban Wind Simulation

Nikolay Kolibarov (GATE) and Dag Wästberg (DTCC), ML Approach to Roof Segmentation for LOD2 Building Reconstruction
