DUET is conducting the final round of local testing activities with a dual purpose of demonstrating the benefits of its digital twin solution to local stakeholders (urban planners, city managers, citizens) and collecting their feedback on digital twin's UX and other functionalities that can be further improved and enhanced.
One such activity took place in Pilsen (CZ) recently. In total, almost 40 participants - most of them from the local administration - gathered on the premises of SITMP, the city's IT administration, to test two scenarios in a digital twin environment.
In one scenario, they had to simulate the impact of a large-scale construction project in Nepomuchka street, in another - conduct an emergency exercise at a local football stadium to see how it would affect traffic in nearby streets.
"I'm excited to see so many civil servants using our Local Digital Twin in today's exercise", said Stanislav Štangl, Head of GIS at SITMP. "Many admitted DUET's technology is a valuable decision support tool that can make urban planning in Pilsen more agile and data driven. We also received a lot of useful feedback on what can be improved, so we'll be working on this in the coming weeks."
The project will be sharing updates from other pilots in due course. In the meantime, do check out the Pilsen's testing session as it happen (see below), and let us know you if you have any questions about the Pilsen twin or DUET in general. Contact us by email.
