New Publication: Interactive Digital Twins Framework for Asset Management Through Internet

The Smart Systems Group congratulates Mr. Leo Kong for the acceptance of his paper to the IEEE Global Conference on Artificial Intelligence & Internet of Things on Monday 14th December. This conference was held virtually and hosted in Dubai, UAE.

Co-authored by Mr. Sam Harper, Mr. Daniel Mitchell, Dr. Jamie Blanche, Dr. Theo Lim and Prof. David Flynn, this paper presents how digitalization influences the design, operation and management, as well as planning functions for products and services across a myriad of industries.

“In our research we focus on the specific needs and challenges in the asset management of remote critical infrastructure. We propose a single Digital Twin framework which can synchronize the data and communication protocols across multiple devices to support exchanging data between the physical world and the cyber world under any scenario, anywhere and at any time. Our framework can support the synchronization of 1000 different sensors and actuators. The results of our Digital Twin are demonstrated using embedded, front-end sensing for offshore energy assets. It can filter and translate complex data and messages from any embedded sensor and operating system. Furthermore, we show how a complete Digital Twin framework allows end-users to simulate future events capturing the interactions between the environment, people and assets, enabling a better understanding of operational risks and remaining useful life of assets.”

IEEE Global Conference on Artificial Intelligence & Internet of Things (2020 IEEE GCAIoT) is a leading forum for researchers, practitioners and stakeholders from academia, industry and government to share their latest research contributions, and exchange knowledge with the common goal of shaping the future of the interaction among AI, ML, IoT, 5G, and related technologies to foster digital transformation and develop sustainable, smart cities.

This publication will be available via the conference proceedings and IEEE Xplore.
