How will you contribute?

You will have the opportunity to perform research and contribute to the design and implementation of innovative solutions involving Digital Twins and optimisation applied in the context of a large collaborative project with Waagner-Biro Stage Systems (one of our national industrial partners). In this project, the Digital Twin will be a central piece of a system that based on an accurate representation of a real evolving environment, will support analysis, simulation, and optimisation activities in the area of highly automated entertainment industry solutions.

Your specific activities will include (but are not limited to):

  • Contribute to the design of a Digital Twin architecture adapted for replicating physical systems, with particular interest in the replication of indoor built environments with both stationary and moving components.
  • Particular focus on data integration, modelling and Digital Twin services implementation (e.g., monitoring dashboards, predictive analytics)
  • Design, implement, and test functional Digital Twin prototypes and interactive demonstrations to showcase the capabilities of the technology.
  • Integrate real-time and historical data sources to develop new virtual models to be used in simulation environments and monitoring.
  • Support the visualization research team on the integration of immersive visualization components for the Digital Twin
  • In collaboration with the AI and Data Analytics Platform Team (AIDA), support the deployment of the Digital Twin prototype in a production environment to support the testing, deployment, simulation, and demonstration.
  • In collaboration with the optimisation research team, collaborate with the design and implementation of a design exploration process that will take advantage of the Digital Twin to systematically evaluate different actions and configurations, in order to optimise designs and processes by considering simultaneously many objectives and constraints.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional research and development teams to design algorithms and models for data processing and analysis.
  • Prepare technical documentation, including architecture diagrams, code documentation and user guides.
  • Keep up-to-date of emerging trends and innovations in the Digital Twin ecosystem.
