Federated Digital Twin technologies that can bring together companies and local governments to solve cross-sector social issues and achieve net positivity

Fujitsu is helping to shape the future of social policy with innovative social digital twin technology

Fujitsu is pioneering the convergence of digital technologies with insights from the humanities to help solve social issues in a borderless physical and digital world. Fujitsu is today building on existing technological developments with digital twins – digital models, usually of smaller, self-contained entities such as factories. We are broadening the ambition of these twins to embrace cities, regions, and even societies.

Converging Technologies in action with Fujitsu

Fujitsu has partnered with Hexagon, a global leader in digital reality solutions, to deliver a platform for Stuttgart, Germany, supporting the city’s urban digital twin project. Stuttgart’s civil engineering office will use the SaaS solution to visualize and analyze data from IoT sensors across the city to promote sustainability and enhance the quality of life for 600,000 residents.

Fujitsu is also collaborating with Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in the USA on several research projects focused on developing Social Digital Twin technology. The emphasis is on exploring practical applications for their joint research and technology in global communities. One project is leveraging real-world data, including input of traffic regulations and the movement of vehicles. This means we can evaluate the effectiveness of measures designed to dynamically estimate and control traffic flow. Another is extending current capabilities in 3D modeling of pedestrians and forecasting their behavior over time in urban environments. This can be used to monitor street activity and determine where issues or accidents occur.

In Japan, Fujitsu and the City of Kawasaki are working with the latest computing and next-generation network technologies to implement an SDT that digitally reproduces information in real-time related to the economy, society, and the environment. This will play a key role in the partners’ efforts to contribute to the fulfillment of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Also, the partners are establishing a citizen-participation living lab to connect citizens and businesses to realize its vision for a sustainable “future city”.

Society is just beginning to realize the potential gains from converging technologies like digital twins with insights from behavioral science. Fujitsu is investing decisively in these areas to create the tools and models that will shape the future of social planning.
