Connected Places Catapult is conducting a survey to better understand the priorities of different organisations in relation to the creation of ecosystems of connected digital twins across the transport sector. Focusing on the current receptiveness towards capacity to federate, we are seeking to understand the areas to be addressed and the actions required to enable federation.
We are looking for individuals from the transport sector (or working with systems influenced by this sector, for example, energy) who are currently working on digital twins, shadows, models.
This survey takes 5 minutes to complete and input will be kept anonymised. Closing date: 24 January 2023.
The Transport Research and Innovation Board (https://www.gov.uk/government/groups/transport-research-and-innovation-board) has identified that there is a need for research and development funding to enable the UK to develop digital twinning capability for transport. Digital twins have potential to revolutionise the real-time monitoring of systems, simulation, optimisation and accurate forecasting and could play a key role in transitioning to net zero, improving user experience, increasing resiliency, furthering safety, and accelerating innovation.
This questionnaire looks to capture input from the community to understand the priorities for different organisations regarding ecosystems of connected digital twins (for example a federated network of digital twins). The questions have been informed by stakeholder interviews conducted in December 2022.
The survey will help inform the future vision and roadmap for ecosystems of connected digital twins in transport.
