Building a Sustainable Future with Smart Digital Reality




Creating Smart Digital Reality means developing an accurate digital representation of the real world through the fusion of reality capture data from airborne, ground and mobile sensors and sharing 3D design projects and models within real-world context in order to deeply engage with the world.

Smart Digital Reality allows engineers and scientists to model scenarios, examine impacts, and find the best solution helping avoid risks as well as costly trial and error. Dimensionally accurate cities and landscapes enable planning with greater creativity, fewer errors, less waste, and ideally no regrets. The smart digital reality preserves the past and the future by helping us make better choices about how we live on our planet.

Sustainability needs to be the focus right now and technologies need to work autonomously in the background to allow people to focus on what really matters in life.


Målgruppen er alle deltagere ved Kortdage 2021. Åbnings-keynoten kommer til at omhandle konferencens hovedtema: Grøn omstilling.
