Building spatial infrastructure for the fourth industrial revolution
The fourth industrial revolution is a range of new technologies that are fusing the physical, digital and biological worlds - often referred to as the Digital Twin. The purpose of the Digital Twin is allow us to create, test, build, operate and maintain everything we do in the digital world. The corollary of this is that every change to an object in the real world needs to be reflected back into the digital world, to ensure the currency and accuracy of the digital world that is now effectively the control panel for the physical world.
Spatial infrastructure is the framework of both the digital and the physical world allowing us to position objects so they function correctly in relation to the environment and to each other. This presentation covers what's required to build the spatial framework for the Digital Twin as a full 4D digital world model, and then addresses a few of the key opportunities arising from it.
