Digital Twin: a perfect copy of the physical world

See how the patent activity of the digital twin has changed over time.

On the 20th of May, US-based Bentley Systems became the latest company to join the Digital Twin Consortium, a global ecosystem of organisations committed to demonstrating the value of digital twin technology and accelerating the market opportunities. Founding members include Microsoft and Dell.

A digital twin is a virtual replica of something. It could be a living thing, an object, a place, a system, a process or a device either in existence or yet to be created. It can be considered a bridge between the physical and digital world on which simulations can be run for testing. The technology has many applications across all industries. Patent activity over recent years demonstrates the growing interest and research dollars being directed towards the field.
