Empowered by a range of information and communication tools (ICTs), SMF4INFRA will output bi-directional digital twin to operationalize the interaction between the physical and digital systems.

3D Simulation Engine

Unity is a cross-platform game engine developed by Unity Technologies, which will be used to create and grow real-time applications, simulations and experiences for  the SMF development. 

Model-Based Systems Engineering

Cameo Systems Modeler ™ is an industry leading cross-platform collaborative Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) environment, which provides smart, robust, and intuitive tools to define, track, and visualize all aspects of systems in the most standard-compliant SysML models and diagrams.

Internet of Things offers a complete solution, providing CAD interfaces, kinematic components, drives, sensors, and interfaces to industrial automation systems.

Digital Twins

Digital twin, which enables bi-directional data flow. In addition to real-time monitoring of physical systems, data can also be passed from the digital model to the physical systems to provide new input data for optimizing the real systems.

Semantic Web

Semantic web is used to provide information in a structured form so that it can be processed automatically by machines. The combination of structured data and inferencing can yield much information not explicitly stated.

LCA Software Framework

Life cycle assessment (LCA) is a methodology for assessing environmental impacts associated with all the stages of the life cycle of a product, process, or service. Brightway is an open-source software package for life cycle assessment (LCA) and environmental impact assessment written in the Python programming language. .
