The emerging opportunities for digital twins in Malaysia

The emerging opportunities for digital twins in Malaysia. [Newspaper] (2021)


In March 2020, it was announced in Malaysia that digital twin technology was used in the development of the Pan Borneo Highway. The technology was used to build accurate 3D models of the project, while integrating road information, maintenance systems and other details to manage data and enable a complete visualisation of the highway for the government to monitor and be involved in the process. Malaysia isn't unique. Digital twins is a tried-and-true technology that can help government agencies collaborate, test-bed new technology, and support policy decisions, within a true-to-life model of the city. It has been utilised by many city planners to facilitate innovation and operations. For example, in Shanghai, specialists created a complete virtual clone of the city to help monitor everything from traffic and building operations to bridge maintenance. They can even use predictive data to simulate floods for disaster planning.
