DigiTwin Demo Day 2

Welcome to the Demo Day of DigiTwin research project where you will experience digital twin related demos and hear about our research results.
Digitwin workshop 2019

Stream here

Welcome to DigiTwin Demo Day 2, where we present research results from the project. 

In the DigiTwin project, we developed digital twin into a concrete concept that can be used to boost businesses. The project partners include Ideal PLM, Konecranes, RD Velho, Remion, Siemens and is led by Aalto University. The project is funded by Business Finland.  

In the presentations, you will hear about the research results, including the definition of a digital twin, how to build and compare digital twins, how to apply artificial intelligence to crane condition monitoring, and what are the challenges and possibilities for scaling up digital twins.  

Demos showcase different digital twin related applications. You will also have a chance to discuss more about digital twins at company stands.
