One for the calendar :- we recently did a demonstrator project with Microsoft’s Azure Digital Twins team for the Build Conference which will be featured as a Deep Dive on Microsoft’s Channel 9 IoT Show on August 3rd.


In this session we will demonstrate an application that combines 3D models, 2D maps, and reality mesh into a single environment for visualisation   Within that environment we will demonstrate a live, real time, seamless visualization of IoT data streams.  Next we will walk through the architecture that enables the application.  We will show how we have mapped the IoT data to the assets within the digital twin.  And we will show how to keep the digital twin in step with engineering changes.  This is done by automating the generation of the Digital Twin Description Language (DTDL) .JSON.

Bentley's iTwin platform and iModel.js open-source programming library provide powerful capabilities for aggregating 3D, 2D, reality data and other sources to link with IoT data for a "single pane of glass" visualization, analytics, and simulation so users can make more effective decisions in a timely manner. By integrating the iTwin platform with Azure Digital Twins and other Azure IoT services, Bentley and Microsoft are making it easier for developers, integrators, and customers to build digital twins of their infrastructure assets.

It would be great to get feed back from as many as possible once the show has aired

Hi @Mark Coates , thanks for sharing this with us its great to see some of the work that is going on at Bentley. I will get this added to the community calendar so that everyone can see the event is happening. If you have any materials (papers, etc.) you would like to share please feel free to post them as well.

Hi @Samuel A Chorlton - no problem I have also upload into resources the “Connected Highway Demonstrator" paper that goes with event.

It shows how easy it can be to federate IoT Data in Infrastructure Digital Twins.

I would welcome any feedback and/or comments from members
