The “smart city” integrates information and communication technology (ICT), and various physical IoT (Internet of things) devices to optimize the efficiency of city operations and services. In some cases, this involves lidar technology that can track traffic and pedestrian flow, or the creation of entire digital twins of cities that can be used for monitoring, simulation and more. These digital twins and IoT integrations have the potential to enhance quality, performance and interactivity of urban services, to reduce costs and resource consumption and to increase contact between citizens and government. Presentations in this session will focus on the applications of technologies including lidar, mobile mapping, and reality capture to serve as the foundation for creating smarter cities.

Digital Twins! Are they fraternal, identical, or conjoined? What type of Digital Twins do you have? What type of Digital Twin do you need? Who is going to nurture (operate and manage) your Digital Twin? What even constitutes a Digital Twin for you and your organization? Cindy will discuss how clients and the buildingSMART USA Airport Room Digital Twin Workgroup are bridging the gap between the physical world and virtual world from procurement to construction and facilities management, and will discuss different uses that need to be identified, managed, monitored, and maintained in order to have business value to all users.
