Centre for Digital Built Britain completed its five-year mission and closed its doors at the end of September 2022

This website remains as a legacy of the achievements of our five-year foundational journey towards a digital built Britain

Project background

This project represents an early trial to address the research gap on city-level digital twins. The pilot is focused on commutes, such as journeys to work, which are a key determinant of peak-time travel demand. It aims to develop a digital twin model prototype for examining the potential impacts of digital transformation on journeys to work in the Cambridge sub-region.


A computational digital twin model was developed based on the journeys to work data. The proposed digital twin model builds on established transport modelling methods and incorporates new explanatory variables relating to the type of employment and the demands on the built environment.
