Reality capture techniques provide the foundation for creating a Digital Twin.
Reality capture is performed by collecting digital data points via laser scanning, drone, and photogrammetry, to create a three-dimensional model of a structure, equipment, or even an entire community. After this is completed, you can then integrate process interactions and systems information. Using the latest software, PMI experts create a realistic and accurate 3D model for your project. Our Digital Twins Solutions aid a diverse client base and provide accurate and detailed data, helping achieve your goals:
- Predictive maintenance
- Theoretical models
- Manufacturing changeovers
- Urban planning
Our Digital Twin Services in Reality Capture Include
PMI uses LiDAR, 3D Laser Scanning, and photogrammetry, to gather data points to create an accurate and detailed virtual model of your space or structure. These 3D models can be used to test “what-if” scenarios and improve workflow.
Our team can use their expertise to leverage CAD for your project, creating a 2D or 3D model to help reach your efficiency goals. We provide comprehensive CAD Services from project planning initiation and initial CAD drafting to maintenance with BIM modeling and beyond.
Using intelligent models, you can visualize and interact with your space on a digital platform. PMI uses scan-to-BIM to create a 3D model for your project and data, helping you get the most out of your facility.
GIS Consulting Services
GIS services provide spatial data information in a digestible and easy-to-utilize format. GIS technology organizes spatial data visually and provides specific and important insights such as resource knowledge, demographic trends, and utility mapping information. These technologies also help capture crucial data, allowing for improved hazard and risk assessment, detection of changes, and environmental monitoring, as well as general analysis.
Digital Twin Simulation Modeling
Once you’ve created a model of your structure or space you can then apply traditional industrial engineering simulation modeling to create a realistic depiction of machinery, robotics, IoT, and traffic. New structures and new processes can easily be integrated with existing conditions utilizing software such as JACK, Arena, AutoMod, ProModel, and Process Simulate just to name a few.
Our crowd management simulations utilize advanced technology to mirror real-world pedestrian infrastructure and environments. They consider factors such as building layout, exits, entrances, and foot traffic flow to identify potential bottlenecks, overcrowding, and safety hazards. We also incorporate how people navigate the environments, providing critical insight into how to optimize the environments.
