Our Sustainable Digital Twin Event

Slingshot Simulations hosted the Digital Twin Consortium for a Sustainable Digital Twin Event Information Day.

This event brought together international industry heavyweights with technical pioneers and the Digital Twin Consortium. 

The focus: Sustainable Digital Twins.

Here at Slingshot, we define a Sustainable Digital Twin as a twin which “integrates and analyses data, simulates outcomes, and is implemented in a sustainable way while focusing on sustainable outcomes”.

Our event involved a panel discussion, practical demonstrations and presentations.

The overall focus was ‘How can digital twin technology be used to reach Net Zero goals?’.

“This event was a fantastic opportunity to showcase the potential of Sustainable Digital Twins and their positive environmental impact with global tech leaders and huge industry heavy-weights.”

LUCI (Leeds Urban Community Involved) Digital Twin Project-

Leeds City Council came together with universities to utilise our Digital Twin solution creating LUCI …

This demonstration showed how tech (Digital Twins and Decision Intelligence) can combat the issues of disperate data, showcasing the example of LUCI for fast data collaboration, analytics, and sharing.

Leeds city data can be ingested with LUCI, for example: heat data, traffic, land-use and pollution levels. LUCI offers a singular location to visualise and analyse this data.

Our guest speakers:
