ASHVIN Impact Stories: Experts sharing views on the Future Digital Building Twin

🎬 Take a comfortable position for five minutes to discover the new video series of ASHVIN Impact Stories! 

These videos showcase the impact that the experts working on the project see for the ASHVIN solution in the construction industry, presenting the ground-breaking technologies developed in ASHVIN, reflecting on how ASHVIN’s digital twin tools can become sustainable beyond the project’s duration, but also reflecting more generally the next steps of the digital transformation of the construction sector!


In the third episode, Demo site 4 leader and DES tool leader, Manuel Jungmann explains his work at ASHVIN. He has participated in the collection of data and the development of a tool to set-up discrete event based stochastic simulations of planned construction activities and site layouts.  

In the second video episode, Technical Coordinator Rahul Romar, Co-founder of DigitalTwin Technology GmbH took the floor. Together with his team, they are developing digital twin tools such as the CMT and translating the data to understand the construction sites better.

He reflects on challenges such as the need for standardization, stakeholder engagement, data integration, and end-user reluctance to adopt digital practices in construction.

In the first video episode, meet Rolando Chacón, Associate Professor from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC)He sees that the added value of the ASHVIN  Digital Twin system is able to encompass data collected with a varied range of sensors and devices from the construction or infrastructure asset sites.  

Rolando leads ASHVIN research on developing digital twin tools and methodologies for infrastructure asset management; he also coordinates several pilot sites in ASHVIN. 

These videos were short during ASHVIN’s 6th consortium meeting in Stockholm, in June 2023.

In the background, you can hear people enjoying their time in the local Gröna Lund Park. It is Sweden’s oldest amusement park. The park was built around old 19th-century residential and commercial structures, making its location unique. Did you know in the leisure industry, digital twin technology can be utilized to provide interactive experiences for customers? For instance, amusement parks can simulate rides and attractions using this technology, enabling customers to experience them virtually before they visit the park. The use of digital twins is on the rise in a multitude of industries!
