Virtual twins for Infrastructure & Cities

Improving where we live and how we build.

Smart City Technology Collaboration Digital Twin - Dassault Systemes

Optimizing the built environment

Decision-makers that can experience what a change will look like and how it will affect their operations can make better, more sustainable decisions.

For governments, non-profit organizations and private businesses who are tasked with understanding how things behave in buildings and cities, a virtual twin takes knowledge gathering to the next level.

Having a digital model that’s constantly being fed data from sensors as well as input from both officials and citizens holds massive potential to make conditions more environmentally-friendly and effective.

Stakeholders responsible for sourcing materials needed to create built environments can also benefit from this approach, such as gaining insights into material options or designing safer equipment and ventilation systems in mines.

Transforming urban planning with 3DEXPERIENCity®

Digital Twin technologies enabling collaborative work in smart city project.

The city virtual twin solution intuitively facilitates data sharing across the ecosystem: digital twins are central to digital transformation. Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCity® enables all smart cities stakeholders to collaborate beyond disciplinary silos and drive digital transformation in territorial and urban projects to become more sustainable, resilient, and resource-full.

Aurora Project

In collaboration with Arthur Mamou-Mani, architect and researcher, and the Dassault Systèmes Design Studio, the Aurora project aims at reducing the footprint of architectural structures at several levels of scale (molecular engineering, energy waste during production, biodegradable and re-used raw materials) during the shaping phase (macro), while using non-toxic materials from plants (micro).

Rennes Métropole Project

The metropolitan area of Rennes, France, is using the virtual twin experience to address downstream current climate impacts, upstream prediction of new ones, manage and transform its landscape, all according to public development policies with operational needs and consultation with local citizens.

Virtual Singapore

The first-ever full digital model of a city, set to revolutionize the way cities are organized and managed

Committed for the United nations SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

the United Nations Sustainable development goals are the worldwide guidelines to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.

Virtual Twin Experiences for Manufacturing Industries, powered by Dassault Systemes, is focusing on spurring economic growth and tackling climate change through Goal 2, 6, 7,11 and 15.

These goals drive long-term regulations to instill positive change, reduce resource consumption, and reach net-zero carbon emissions.
