Digital twins are a virtualized description including data and mathematical models of a real-world object. It enables easy sharing of the objects by digitally re-producing it's features for understanding of its functionalities. Such features often do not replicate physical effects accurately in the cyberspace but are useful to visualize any object without actually creating it.
Digital twins can be created in Virtual Reality (VR) or Augmented Reality (AR) for emulating IoT devices in real-time to provide a wide range of user experiences. This project intends to investigate the methods of creating Digital twins for both single device systems typically small enough to fit on a desk and multi-device complex systems spread over a room or building.
The research can look into various areas including:
The application area could be Remote Laboratories which is meant for education and training using a range of electromechanical systems. However, other applications areas may be chosen as well, depending on candidate's area of expertise.
