DigitalTwin refers to using a digital copy of the physical system, such as machinery, factory, control system, supply chain to conduct real-time experimentation and performance improvement. DigitalTwin project applies simulation software technologies to build virtual environments for industry.

Some interesting topics on our current works are related to:

  • Applications of AR/VR/MR technologies
  • Cloud manufacturing
  • Smart connected devices (IoT)
