[...] A Digital Twin refers to a digital replica of a reference object that already exists in reality or can be foreseen to exist in the future. The digital replica is based on a set of (accurate) data derived from the reference object, and a means to dynamically update or adjust the data if and when the reference object itself changes. Changing the digital replica parameters should accurately predict and evaluate the reference object‘s behavior in the real world [2]. Claims about data accuracy, high fidelity, and external validity make a Digital Twin significantly distinct from models and simulations in a generic sense. [...]
