Work in Progress: Towards a Single Underlying Model for the Digital Twin of Future Road Infrastructures

Research output: Contribution to book/conference proceedings/anthology/reportConference contributionContributedpeer-review


The mobility of people and goods is at the heart of our modern society with increasingly global and diverse networked processes. In its current form, mobility, especially concerning road traffic, faces global challenges (durability, safety, efficiency, ecology, costs, automation, etc.) that require to fundamentally revise the way we plan and build roads 1. A project SFB/TRR 339 is aimed at resolving current gaps and making a step forward in terms of building and maintaining roads of the future. The main objective of our project is to create a digital twin of the street that will help to achieve new integration deepness between vehicles and road systems. This paper represents our vision of this digital twin architecture and our first steps in its implementation.
