The digital twin is a data-based simulation environment. By setting up a central platform, the digital planning of construction, traffic and infrastructure measures is to be supported and supplemented by the possibility of simulating the effects of the measures.
The first step was the demo of the sugar factory area, which was created on a test environment with the support of the Chempark operator Currenta as initial partner and on the basis of which various feasibilities were tested. The demo is currently being moved to a productive environment. In addition to 3D data from overflight images of the sugar factory site, the demo involves various 3D modeling of buildings, greenery and infrastructure. In addition, overflight images of Dormagen-Mitte, Dormagen-Nord and parts of Horrem were created, which will be added to the Digital Twin in the short term via so-called tiles.
The digital twin is to be developed successively for the entire Dormagen urban area, provide all relevant data in real time and enable interfaces to external databases.
