Digital Twin

Road & City Digital Twinning Service Australia

Innovation is not only segregated to the edgy agencies or the dreamer entrepreneur, there is also innovation to be found across all sectors. Digital twin technology is being used to assist in road and city improvement and design, allowing town planners, engineers and construction workers to be targeted and strategic. Australia is at the forefront of technology integration, so let’s understand the potential of road and city digital twinning technology services in Australia.

What Is Digital Twin Technology?

Digital Twin is a new approach that duplicates assets, infrastructure, buildings, and entire cities or products. These ‘twins’ are digital representations where both models provide respective benefits. For example, a product or asset twin can be accessed through a computer program or online, allowing the user to understand, test, and plan future designs based on the real-world data and information that the twin offers. This information helps to take the guesswork out of any design or construction or buying decision.

3D Twins are to scale and can provide people with a digitally engineered product that can be used for many purposes.

RapidMap uses this technology to improve processes, decisions and the efficiency of road-based projects using a 360 degree camera capture to personalise “streetviews” of road corridors for Asset Managers.

Our experienced teams have worked with industry leaders on new road infrastructure and existing roads to identify issues and areas that can be improved. By engaging RapidMap, you can leverage a rich source of data about how an asset or service operates to achieve greater success and accuracy in any upcoming road-based project.

What We Do

Creating Smart City Digital Twin Map

It might surprise you to know that Google Maps is not the only service out there, and that many State Government organisations are creating digital twin city models as part of their smart city initiatives. These models allow the user to see information such as road closures in a real-world context that can make a city map an exact twin of what is happening around them. This is an invaluable tool for businesses who want to plug this technology into their online platforms for urban planning and engineering professionals to get a better understanding of opportunities and hindrances too.

Creating Digital Twins for Roads & Highways

Creating digital twins for roads and highways allows for efficient design for transportation routes. RapidMap has specialised in projects such as this for many years, with the data-rich digital twins able to support decision makers to design better real-world traffic flow to address demands, bottlenecks and plan for future construction. Additionally, the digital twin provides a record and enables the measurement of assets such as bridges, overhead signs, street lights, fences, barriers, reflectors on the road, guard rails, street signage, trees, vegetation and any other item you would see on a road or highway.

Creating a Digital Twin for Urban Planning

As populations grow, so too does the town planning needs for a city. Digital twin technology finally links the important data that exists around population growth with urban planning and urban design. Planners can operate with all the variables known and anticipate patterns and future needs accordingly. Digital twin models are also used to visualise good design and share this by integrating to existing 3D cities and environments.

Digital Twin for Predictive Maintenance

Digital twin technology for predictive maintenance can save Asset Managers a lot of time, as they are not waiting to have an risk or defect increase in severity before it finally reaches the department tasked with fixing it. Predictive twin maintenance goes beyond using a 3D map of assets but also overlays spatial objects from GIS complete with current status for comparison. This 4D approach is unparalleled in its value to a city.

Advantages of Digital Twin Maps

The advantages of digital twin maps are extensive. Designers, planners and construction workers are now able to align and commence a project quickly as they all have a deep understanding of the area and scope of the project. It also offers a direct advantage to the average citizen, with issues and hazards being corrected sooner. When embraced through online applications, people can better anticipate travel, arrivals and plan the ideal route which may even relieve traffic stress and offer a more efficient service delivery.

“The RapidMap team was excellent, delivering the required information. I have learned a lot working with the RapidMap team and wish to work with them again. You made it so simple. Our open space data is much clearer and easier to work with than the previous data. Thank you.”
- Satish Bajracharya, Baw Baw Shire Council
"RapidMap have a very experienced and dedicated team with huge expertise in Asset Data collection. Previously we had little idea how many assets we had in open space. Now we have a very clear idea of what we have and its condition. This will be of enormous benefit in planning for the future and providing services to our community."
- Gwyn Cleeves, Sutherland Shire Council
"RapidMap’s proven methodology and built-in QC ensured the data was of the highest quality and saved us a great deal of money."
- Paul Lennox, Bass Coast Shire Council
"The project was completed within time and budgetary constraints and the supplied data, in GIS format, was of a high quality and met the specified requirements.”
- Cam McFarlane, Macedon Ranges Shire Council
“…Brendan and the team were a pleasure to deal with and I would have no hesitation in recommending RapidMap to other organisations.”
- Helene Agius, City of Port Phillip
