This Digital Twin Week session was hosted by SCCANZ collaborator the Digital Twin Consortium.


Join colleagues from the United States as we hear about leading projects and Digital Twin applications across multiple sectors. This session comprised a series of showcases and Q&A.


Presentations included:

  • David Mckee, CEO of Slingshot simulations introduces their Digital Twin data reference architecture that has been developed over the last decade in collaboration with the universities of Cambridge, Leeds, Manchester, and others to facilitate automated data integration of IoT, satellites, models and simulations.

  • Sean Olcott, Technical Director at Gafcon discusses how built asset owners can make sense of the accelerating technology advances and innovation in the real estate and construction industry. Learn how public agencies and project owners can fully leverage capital investment in built infrastructure to make their cities more sustainable, resilient and accessible.

  • Pieter van Schalkwyk, CEO and Founder of XMPro discusses event-based Digital Twins to identify critical events in your real-time data, apply analytics like predictive algorithms, and provide decision-makers with recommended actions. They also close the feedback loop and analyse the effectiveness of the response actions. Learn how you can exploit real-time Digital Twins to improve operational yield, reduce costs and limit compliance risk in large scale infrastructure environments.

The session was opened and moderated by Dan Isaacs, Vice President at the Digital Twin Consortium.
