Digital Twin City: Concept
Based on the information technology systems of digital identification, automated perception, networked connection, inclusive computing, intelligent control and platform services, a digital twin city matching the physical city is recreated in the digital space, with holographic simulation, dynamic monitoring, real-time diagnosis and accurate prediction of the state of the physical city entity in the real environment.

Digital Twin City: Benefits
The digital twin city offers a model of urban planning and construction for future sustainable development that effectively combines innovations in digital technology with urban operational mechanisms, and provides a feasible path for urban upgrading. Through the precise mapping, virtual-real integration and intelligent feedback of physical and digital cities, it promotes safer, more efficient urban activities and more convenient and inclusive everyday services, as well as helps to create more low-carbon, sustainable environments.

Join the AARP International Team for the next virtual spotlight in the Equity by Design – Principles in Action series.

Involvement of people of all ages in Digital Twin City (DTC) projects is critical to creating the accessible and equitable virtual urban environments that inform city planning. We are excited to be joined by: – Silvia Urra, Senior Researcher in the Urban Transformation Lab of City, Territory and the Environment Area, TECNALIA – Marine Luc, Project Officer, AGE Platform Europe – Dr. Mani Dhingra, Senior Postdoctoral Researcher / Smart City Digital Twin Manager, Maynooth University, Ireland For more information about Equity by Design and to view previous dialogues, visit:
