Advanced Technique for Developing Digital Twins Makes Tech Universally Applicable

AUSTIN, Texas — A universally applicable digital twin mathematical model has been co-developed by researchers at The University of Texas at Austin that could be used for systems as diverse as a spacecraft, a person or even an entire city.

In 1970 NASA’s Apollo 13 mission to the moon had to be abandoned after one of the oxygen tanks on board the spacecraft exploded, redirecting the crew’s attention to survival.

Although the term was not coined for another 40 years, it is now understood that Mission Control’s use of Apollo spacecraft simulators to help guide the astronauts safely back to Earth was perhaps the first time “digital twin” technology had been used…………
