For architecture, real estate, and the built environment
The world of urban planning and city maintenance is changing. The benefits of digital twins are becoming more and more apparent, as these analysis tools help increase efficiencies and inform decisions. Want to learn more about the role Unreal Engine can play, or to discuss your own implementation of digital twins? Contact us to start the conversation.
A digital twin is a 3D model of a physical entity like a building or city, but with live, continuous data updating its functions and processes in real time, providing a means for analyzing and optimizing a structure. When live data from the physical system is fed to the digital replica, it moves and functions just like the real thing, giving you instant visual feedback on your processes. The collected data can be used to calculate metrics like speed, trajectory, and energy usage, and to analyze and predict efficiencies.
At our latest Build: Architecture event, we explored recent developments and customer stories around digital twins, including getting an inside look at what’s coming with UE5 and insights on how GIS technologies are bringing entire worlds to your fingertips.
Check out the new free, open source Unreal Engine plugin from WSP that connects Microsoft’s Azure Digital Twins platform with Unreal Engine. The download includes a sample project that showcases how the plugin works.
With Unreal Engine, you can create complex digital twins, and use them to visualize your assets, processes, and workflow like never before—in real time.
