“Digital Twin” concept uses a Raspberry Pi to model a mountain bike

International company PTC has unveiled a new concept known as a “Digital Twin”. They took a CAD-designed mountain bike and mounted a bunch of sensors on-board. These sensors feed into a Raspberry Pi which interprets the data and creates a virtual ‘twin’ of the mountain bike. It is hoped that this concept can be used with any computer-designed item to test out prototypes and see how different factors affect performance. Read more over at The IET.
