Leveraging 3D Reality Models for Critical Infrastructure: Digital Twins and the Transformation to Digital Engineering - LECTURE - Aerial Alchemy

Synopsis
“Digital Twins” promise exceptional benefits to industry. This digital representation helps engineers use analytical software to recognize early warning signs for risk mitigation, prevent downtime and plan better projects at lower costs. The first step in creating a Digital Twin is to capture data for a 3D Reality Model.

Whether capturing data from the ground or in the air, via photogrammetry or Lidar, the art of 3D Reality Modeling in a critical infrastructure environment requires safe, accurate and repeatable data acquisition. The precision with which that data is captured determines the effectiveness and efficiency of post processing, and the tools used in post processing determine the quality of the 3D Model and Digital Twin. 

In this session we will discuss:

1) Integrating remote sensing technologies to solve data collection problems
2) Data acquisition in a critical infrastructure environment
3) Post processing with Bentley ContextCapture to deliver actionable models 
4) 3D Reality Models and the transformation to Digital Engineering.

Please see this link for a short video overview of Aerial Alchemy’s data acquisition and Reality Modeling process: http://iplayerhd.com/player/cec626ae-f30f-4df9-af7c-deb04f537d9c

Speakers
Aerial Alchemy, a Bentley and Archway partner, specializes in mission-based remote data capture and delivery. 
– Chuck Spaulding, President and Founder, Aerial Alchemy
– Jim Brammer, Director of Business Development, Aerial Alchemy
– Julianna DaSilva, Data Specialist, Aerial Alchemy.
