A Digital Twin can be a powerful tool throughout a building lifecycle, but if not planned correctly, it can become a time and cost sink. By designing with the end in mind, and looking forward to what data and information will be needed once the building has been constructed, the pathway to a digital twin can be much more straightforward. This presentation will focus on several large-scale digital twin projects, with emphasis on the pre-planning that went in to their creation.

Digital twins can start as either new construction or existing facilities. Both provide unique values, challenges, limitations and opportunities. We'll explore some high value considerations for each and tie both paths together with an end state digital twin product.
Using Drone Data to Create Digital Twin
Yunpeng Li, Automodality, Inc
Drones can gather large amounts of data faster, cheaper and safer. Drone data can be used to create accurate, geo-referenced 3D models that can be readily working with CAD/BIM models to visualize designs. Augmented by AI processing or machine learning, drone data can be turned into actionable insights throughout the building lifecycle from planning to maintenance. Deploying a drone to gather repeatable, reliable, and accurate data remains challenging, particularly when it is operated indoors or GPS-denied environment. We will share several perspectives of employing advanced perceptive navigation technology with commercial drone platforms and specialized sensors to supply an autonomous solution for data acquisition and analytics.
