  7. A group of researchers at University of Manchester (including myself) are conducting a research study into perceptions around “urban digital twins”, to capture opportunities, challenges, and gaps. Since digital twin applications are still in their infancy, no specific knowledge of digital twins is required to take part in the project. We wish to interview individuals involved professionally with the urban environment or digital twins. No prior preparation is required. The study will involve a 1hr virtual interview and the opportunity to check the anonymised notes afterwards. The full participant information for the study is here. If you would like to participate, please book a slot using this link. We would also welcome any other collaboration opportunities around urban digital twins - please reply here or get in touch with guy.marshall@postgrad.manchester.ac.uk if this may be of interest. Thanks for reading! Guy

    This research aimed to investigate the breadth and depth of digital twin blockers, galvanising the community towards greater engagement and collaboration to solve a complex set of national challenges. The DT Hub’s strategic approach was cyclical, beginning with highlighting the challenges and the opportunities faced by members. The project consisted of a series of strategy jams with the community interspersed by activity on the DT Hub in a ‘call-and-response’ manner. This approach became more effective as the project progressed. First, community thinking was used to seed the Roadblock Identification Jam, whose outputs in turn were put back into the community for further comment, refinement and validation. The next step was to kick off a discussion on the relative importance of different roadblocks to feed into the Roadblock Prioritisation Jam. Again, the outputs were subsequently checked in the wider community. The final DT Hub activity was preparatory to the Roadblock Prototyping Jam, consisting of a brainstorm to find ways around certain blockers, the results of which were fed into the final Jam – evaluating the problem definition and trying to find solutions. The research resulted in recommendations to support the DT Hub in tackling gaps, prioritising pressing issues and galvanising engagement to tackle the blockers. In summary, they are to: · Form a digital twin accelerator programme · Review the online community platform · Leverage the convening power of the DT Hub for engagement with others · Lead on the development of vision and value for digital twins · Evaluate and progress the Strategy Jam ideas · Introduce a problem-solving toolkit · Conduct a meta-analysis to compare this research with other findings and DT Hub resources. You can also access the full report.
  17. Introduction The Strategic Pipeline Alliance (SPA) was established to deliver a major part of Anglian Water’s ‘Water Resources Management Plan’ to safeguard against the potential future impacts of water scarcity, climate change and growth, whilst protecting and enhancing the environment. The SPA was established to deliver up to 500km of large diameter interconnecting transmission pipelines, associated assets and a Digital Twin.  Digital transformation was identified early in the programme as a core foundational requirement for the alliance to run its ‘business’ effectively and efficiently. It will take Anglian Water through a digital transformation in the creation of a smart water system, using a geospatial information system as a core component of the common data environment (CDE), enabling collaboration and visualisation in this Project 13 Enterprise. Digital Transformation Our geospatial information system (GIS) described is just one part of a wider digital transformation approach that SPA has been developing and is a step change in the way that Anglian Water uses spatial data to collaborate and make key decisions, with net savings of £1m identified.  When the newly formed SPA went from an office-based organisation to a home-based organisation overnight due to COVID19, standing up an effective central GIS system was critical to maintain the ability to work efficiently, by providing a common window to the complex data environment to all users. With 500km of land parcels and around 5000 stakeholders to liaise with, the GIS system provided the central data repository as well as landowner and stakeholder relationship management. The mobile device applications, land management system, ground investigation solution and ecology mapping processes all enabled SPA to hit its key consenting and EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) application dates.   We got the Alliance in place and fully operative within six months and the SPA GIS has helped fast-track a key SPA goal of increasing automation throughout the project lifecycle; automation tools such as FME (Feature Manipulation Engine), Python and Model Builder have been widely adopted, driving efficiencies.   The SPA GIS analyses and visually displays geographically referenced information. It uses data that is attached to a unique location and enables users to collaborate and visualise near real time information. Digital optimisation will provide enormous value and efficiencies in engineering, production, and operational costs of the smart water system. Having a single repository of up-to-date core project geospatial deliverables and information has reduced risk and enabled domain experts and our supply chain to interact with data efficiently.  Enterprise Architecture Spending quality time up front in developing an enterprise architecture and data model allowed us to develop a CDE based around GIS. A cost model was approved for the full five years, and the platform was successfully rolled out. The Enterprise Architecture model was created in a repository linked to Anglian Water’s enterprise. This included mapping out the technology and data integration requirements, as well as the full end-to-end business processes. The result was a consistent, interoperable solution stack that could be used by all alliance partners, avoiding costly duplication. GIS was identified as a key method of integrating data from a wide range of different sources, helping to improve access across the alliance to single version of the truth and improving confidence in data quality. In addition, a fully attributed spatial data model was developed representing the physical assets. This will help support future operations and maintenance use cases that monitor asset performance. Benefits The use of our GIS system is enabling SPA to meet its obligations around planning applications and obtaining landowner consent to survey, inspect and construct the strategic pipeline. Hundreds of Gb of data had to be collected, analysed, and managed to create our submissions.  The SPA GIS provides secure, consistent, and rapid access to large volumes of geospatial data in a single repository. Using a common ‘web-centric’ application, the solution enables teams to cooperate on location-based data, ensuring its 700+ users can access current and accurate information. The intuitive interface, combined with unlimited user access, has enabled the Alliance to rapidly scale without restriction.  We have also enabled the functionality for desktop software (ESRI ArcPro, QGIS, FME, AutoDesk CAD and Civil3D) to connect to the geodatabase to allow specialist users to work with the data in the managed, controlled environment, including our supply chain partners. The integration of SPA Land Management and SPA GIS in one platform has brought advantages to stakeholder relationship management by enabling engagement to be reviewed spatially.  SPA’s integrated geospatial digital system has been the go-to resource for the diverse and complex teams. The use of our GIS system has been used to extensively engage with the wider Anglian Water operational teams, enabling greater collaboration and understanding of the complex system. The GIS system has, in part, enabled SPA to remove the need to construct over 100km of pipeline, instead re-using existing assets that have been identified in the GIS solution, contributing to the 63% reduction in forecast capital carbon, compared to the baseline.  The SPA Land Management solution incorporates four core areas: land ownership, land access survey management and stakeholder relationship management (developed by SPA) which puts stakeholder and customer engagement at its heart. With 300 unique land access users, traditionally, these areas would be looked after by separate teams, with separate systems which struggle to share data. With the digital tool, land and engagement data can be shared across SPA, creating a single source of truth, mitigating risk across the whole infrastructure programme. This has benefitted our customers, as engagement with them is managed much more effectively. Our customer sentiment surveys show 98% are satisfied with how we are communicating with them.  The Enterprise Architecture solution allows for capabilities to be transferred into Anglian Water’s enterprise, and there has been careful consideration around ensuring the value of data collected during the project is retained. SPA is developing blueprints as part of the outputs to enable future Alliances to align with best practices, data, cyber and technology policies. SPA is also focussing on developing the cultural and behavioural aspects with Anglian Water to enable Anglian to be able to accept the technological changes as part of this digital transformation. This is a substantial benefit and enables Anglian Water to continue to work towards its operator of the future ambitions, where digital technologies and human interfaces will delivery higher levels of operational excellence.

  20. The Cyber-Physical Infrastructure Vision was launched on the 11th February 2022 on the DT Hub. Watch the webinar and read the vision. Humanity faces pressing planetary scale challenges including the climate emergency, resilience to unexpected shocks, consumption, security, healthcare, food, and many others. The UK punches above its weight but we are competing with other countries with more data, more resources, more money and sometimes political advantages too. So as a nation we need to find new ways to create leverage and defensible competitive advantage. To respond to these challenges and opportunities, we need to reframe the concept of infrastructure. This is not just buildings, roads, railways and fibre broadband to rural communities, it is also the enabling cyber-physical infrastructure that is often overlooked. Big vertical initiatives and missions lack the time, budget, capabilities and often the vision to build this infrastructure for themselves, let alone to support other initiatives. Companies like Ocado, Rolls-Royce, Arup and Mott MacDonald are successful demonstrators of the transformative power of this cyber-physical infrastructure but they are the exceptions that we now need to make the norm. So a growing coalition of the willing, led by the Robotics Growth Partnership have been engaging with the government and other stakeholders on a vision for a national Cyber-Physical Infrastructure. Harnessing the power of technologies such as data, Internet of Things, synthetic environments, digital twins, smart machines and living labs, in combination with the tools, infrastructure and recipes that will enable us to work smarter, faster, with less risk and at lower cost. The vision for this Cyber-Physical Infrastructure was published on 11 February 2022 and is available on the gov.uk website via the following link.
  21. 3Cell currently going through one of the largest transformations in the company’s history. So far, 3Cell has mainly been an expert/engineering services provider to multinationals, including mobile operators and mobile network equipment manufacturers. However, we are now working on our own exciting range of products and solutions. 3Cell has prototyped a fully autonomous drone offering that will significantly simplify and digitalise telco site surveys. Our drone offering can operate autonomously to complete surveying missions and use the data collected to generate 3D site models, report on signal strength measurements, manage digital asset data and identify any structural site issues. 3Cell’s grant fund application for Innovate UK has been submitted and waiting for the result. 3Cell have conducted initial research into providing a full end-to-end autonomous drone telecommunications survey solution (elipptic), developing the base architecture for the software platform, and identifying the necessary hardware and cloud engine specifications. This project enables 3Cell to develop a novel AI engine, utilising 3D modelling of the tower and surrounding areas (identifying blocking points) to provide a full survey report and equipment inventory with insights (e.g. antenna positioning/direction) to maximise ROI and 5G network performance, removing the reliance on end-user experience. However this solution could apply to other industries as well where 3D modelling and its data acquisition required. We have already partnered with a range of innovative organisations to turn the prototype into an industrial offering. These include Brunel University, IUK, Cambridge Wireless, UK5G, BT and the University of Westminster. We are getting a range of technical, financial and commercial support from these partners. After all collaborative projects, we expect the first version of the industrialised solution to be working at client sites by late 2022. As part of our solution development and transformation effort, we are calling for organisations or individuals who have an interest in running pilot projects, 5G/Drone trials and in asset digitisation those that can help us increase awareness and build a network in the industry, as well as those that are working on similar drone-based (telco/non-telco) solutions.
  22. Next week’s Gemini Call will include a presentation by Jack Ostrofsky, Head of Quality and Design at Southern Housing Group and Chair of BIM for Housing Associations. BIM for Housing Associations (BIM4HAs) is a client led and client funded initiative set up in 2018 to accelerate the uptake of consistent and open standards-based BIM processes across the Housing Association sector. An urgent priority for this group is building and fire safety, particularly in the context of the development of a Golden Thread of Building Safety Information which is part of the Building Safety Bill which is expected to receive Royal Assent in 2022. Understanding of BIM and Digital Twins in the residential housing sector is poor, yet as long-term owner-operators of built assets, housing associations are ideally placed to benefit from the efficiencies of BIM and Digital Twins. In June 2021 BIM4HAs published a Toolkit of resources for housing associations aimed at assisting them in the process of adopting ‘Better Information Management’. The toolkit, which is free to use, translates the requirements of the National BIM Framework into accessible language and practical tools for housing associations. Jack will describe an example of the challenge to housing associations to use structured data to manage their assets; the transfer of spatial information about buildings which designers and contractors label as ‘plots’, development managers and asset managers in housing associations have their own naming conventions which have evolved in a traditional and disjointed manner. As a result, the metadata links are severed at handover and a great deal of valuable, useable information is lost to the client. Jack’s employer Southern Housing Group has developed a spatial hierarchy and property reference numbering system which was published in the BIM4HAs Toolkit in June. The spatial hierarchy and naming system links to commonly understood asset management language and informs Asset Information Requirements that housing associations can use to instruct development and refurbishment projects. This process enables contractors to provide useable metadata to housing associations and will form an essential part of the implementation of a Golden Thread of Building Safety Information. In a further development Southern Housing Group, working with members of the BIM4HAs community, have developed and are implementing an Asset Information Model based on the Gemini Principles and aligned with the other BIM4HAs work. This Model will be published for free, for anyone to use, by BIM4HAs as part of an update to the BIM4HAs Toolkit in February. Please join us on the Gemini Call on 25th January at 10.30 to hear about the spatial hierarchy work and put your questions to Jack. Download the Spatial Hierarchy Document and ‘The Business Case for BIM’ Document from the links below. Both are part of the Toolkit. The whole Toolkit can be downloaded for free from the National Housing Federation website here: housing.org.uk/BIM4HAs BIM for Housing Associations Pt1 The Business Case for BIM.pdf SHG Spatial Hierarchy UPRN Procedures.pdf

    Digital Twin Hub Community Response Workshop Friday 11 February 2022 The DT Hub Community Response workshop will take place on 11 February 2022, with Arup's Simon Evans leading the 90-minute session. All members are welcome to attend and help shape the plans for the coming year. In March 2021 we saw the first anniversary of the Digital Twin Hub and also the very first Community Response workshop. Since then, the DT Hub has grown in membership, content and reach and goes from strength to strength as its second anniversary approaches. Led by Simon Evans, Digital Energy Leader at Arup, the purpose of the workshop will be to independently review the DT Hub with a representative group of stakeholders from the community. With a focus on what has happened, what has worked and what can be improved on over the last 12 months, the recommendations and findings will contribute to the Annual Benchmark Report. Register here
  24. You’re invited to a webinar on 2nd March to find out how collaboration through connected digital twins can help plan resilient cities and infrastructure. The National Digital Twin programme has developed a Climate Resilience Demonstrator (CReDo), a pioneering climate change adaptation digital twin project that provides a practical example of how connected data can improve climate adaptation and resilience across a system of systems. Watch the film Tomorrow Today, and try the interactive app to see what CReDo has been working towards. The CReDo team will use synthetic data developed through the project to show how it is possible to better understand infrastructure interdependencies and increase resilience. Join the webinar to hear from the CReDo team about the work that has happened behind the scenes of developing a connected digital twin. CReDo is the result of a first-of-its-kind collaboration between Anglian Water, BT and UK Power Networks, in partnership with several academic institutions. The project has been funded by Connected Places Catapult (CPC) and the University of Cambridge, and technical development was led by CMCL and the Hartree Centre. This collaboration produced a demonstrator that looks at the impact of flooding on energy, water and telecoms networks. CReDo demonstrates how owners and operators of these networks can use secure, resilient, information sharing across sector boundaries to adapt to and mitigate the effect of flooding on network performance and service delivery. It also provides an important template to build on to turn it to other challenges, such as climate change mitigation and Net Zero. Hear from members of the CReDo team – including the asset owners, CPC, and the technical development team - about the demonstrator they have delivered and the lessons they learned. If you’re interested in using connected digital twins to forge the path to Net Zero, then this event is for you. Register for our end-of-project webinar on 2nd March, 10:30 – 12:00: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/credo-collaborating-and-resilience-through-connected-digital-twins-tickets-228349628887
