If only we had a crystal ball. Being able to see the future would be so helpful in making important decisions. If we could see the consequences of each specific choice, we would know which is the best path to take. Technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and Augmented Reality (AR) can offer us a glimpse of the future. Both of these developments have contributed to Digital Twin, a dynamic virtual representation of physical reality.
A Digital Twin is the digital reflection of a physical product or process. These technological wonders were dreamed up to improve our understanding of the physical world, make predictions and gain new insights into it. The simulations are created based on real data collected primarily by IoT sensors, CAD data and/or various APIs. The options for experimentation are endless.
