About the Panel

Article

New technologies and processes are transforming the operational landscape of infrastructure projects across the region. With new demands on sustainability, accountability and liveability there is a growing appreciation of geospatial tools, enhanced by access to live data and its associated analytics.

 Discussion Highlights 

  • Panellists touched on digital twins and new processes for infrastructure projects and how the industry can adapt in a post-COVID environment.
  • There are plenty of digital enablers and innovative technologies out there. However, unless there is capacity building in the process, we may not achieve what we want to achieve as a goal of project sustainability. 
  • A digital twin or infrastructure project solution may work well in one city but not anywhere else - one size does not fit all. We need to properly define what is a digital twin to that particular city, and what is the purpose. This will ensure if the smart city project fails or succeeds.
