Knowledge exchange tool for autonomous modalities

Prototypes of autonomous transport are tested using so-called digital twins. These are simulated copies of the real world. In the virtual laboratories testing can be done in a cheap and safe way. We have already applied this several times on the road and this is also possible for the other modalities.

All kinds of scenarios can be tested. For example, when autonomous vehicles, vessels, drones and trains start to work together. By developing an open source digital twin, knowledge exchange between the modalities is stimulated. The Northern Netherlands is the only region in Europe where projects take place in all modalities. With the development of a tool, this knowledge can also be exchanged much more between the modalities. In addition, other regions from the Netherlands and abroad can also contribute their knowledge and experiences here through the open source method. The province of Groningen is currently working with robotTUNER to set up the tool.
