A ‘digital twin’ is a virtual, data-driven representation of the many characteristics and behaviours of any real-world physical asset, process or system. In the railway sector, ‘digital twins’ could be used across several different engineering, planning, and operational aspects, such as monitoring physical assets (rolling stock and infrastructure), monitoring train movements and providing information about passenger behaviour on-board trains, in stations or on platforms.
