Talk Title: Advances in Digital Twins Technologies and Their Applications on International Projects
Digital Twins transcend beyond traditional graphics modelling and virtual reality in that it not only features high fidelity and interactivity, but also captures the inherent principles of real-life objects to make them evolving the same in both real and virtual worlds. A plethora of technologies are thus developed to achieve these objectives, specifically in modelling and animation. In this talk I am going to review several technologies and our group’s contributions. The talk also presents our applications work on Digital Twins in several international collaboration projects, of which the scale of complexity and requirement on fidelity make them both challenging and the solutions rewarding.
