Digital Twins and Smart City Impact on Design, Build, and Manage

Ron Perkins of Jobsite Tech Group addresses the realities of Smart Cities and Digital Twins in AECbytes. How will Digital Twins and Smart City programs change the way projects are designed, built, and managed? That’s a big question that has more than one answer. Smart Cities have been discussed for many years now. The concept of connecting IoT, sensor data, cameras, and other edge devices to a physical structure, campus, city, or town has a lot of promise. Managing assets remotely while capturing analytics and leveraging that information to make predictive decisions suggests efficiency and sustainability at levels not otherwise realized.
