Embracing the Future: Exploring Digital Twin, IoT, and Artificial Intelligence Innovations for Energy,
Autonomous Vehicles, and Construction Services

Prof. Dr. Mohamed Elhabiby, Micro Engineering Tech Inc.

Digital twins are virtual replicas of physical assets, systems, or processes, created through 3D reality capture using real-time data from sensors and other sources. They enable simulation, analysis, and optimization of  various aspects of behaviour and performance. In the energy sector, they assist in designing, testing, and optimizing complex systems. In construction, they support maintenance efforts, and their long-term use enables  predictive maintenance through AI and machine learning, optimizing processing time while reducing downtime and costs. The future holds promise with advancements in reality capture sensors, improved accuracy, better  integration with BIM and GIS systems, increased automation, and real-time data processing. AI integration enhances predictive capabilities, leading to autonomous operations, and the expansion of IoT sensors provides  more data for accurate representation. Cloud-based platforms facilitate remote access and collaboration, while virtual and augmented reality advancements offer an immersive understanding of complex systems. Digital  twins are set to revolutionize industries, enabling better decision-making and performance. Case studies from Canada and Egypt will illustrate their applications in construction, road pavement assessment, autonomous vehicles, and energy.
