How digital twins go beyond classic system modeling approaches by providing a longer lifetime and greater efficiency. The term “digital twin” refers to a new principle that is gaining importance in the development of complex hardware/software systems. In general, it refers to a virtual representation of the real system. This model serves to simulate the functional interactions of the parts, saving time and money by avoiding unnecessary redesign cycles and enabling considerably better optimization of the overall system design. While still relatively new to the area of automotive development, the digital twin concept has been used for years in the field of industrial automation. The system modeling approach already is in widespread use in automotive, particularly with the goal of verifying the system behavior, but the digital twin represents a significant addition.
