The EAISI Digital Twin Lab
Rapid progress in digitalization and artificial intelligence is providing numerous opportunities for virtual and human-interaction research at TU/e. Connecting the real world to the digital world using Digital Twins is facilitated by an increasing availability of sensor information, which allows new applications in many different areas to be explored. EAISI, as the linking pin between TU/e departments and industry in AI, has started a Digital Twin Lab to support experiments in this area, in its three application areas of high-tech systems, health and mobility. The lab brings researchers together from the EAISI Digital Twin Research Community, to share experiences, reduce the cost of setting up experimental environments and to address the important societal issues. This community is large and represents a wide range of advanced research from across the TU. This typically involves modelling real-world situations and creating data interfaces between the real context and model. The Digital Twin lab provides tools such as Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) to allow deeper interaction with the virtual models, using advanced databases to support AI activities.
