PolyChora Alpha: a new digital interface for interdisciplinary city design

The aim of this project was to develop a new digital interface to integrate the data and visualisation of the designs of land use, buildings, transport infrastructure and associated urban services at both the neighbourhood and city scale. The interface can also be used by non-specialists to modify...

Analysing Systems Interdependencies using a Digital Twin

This project investigates how to understand infrastructure complexity, using the digital twin. This work provides a first step toward next-generation systems engineering by demonstrating the feasibility of using a digital twin to generate new insight on systems relationships and interdependencies. ...

Digital Modelling of the Evolution of the Built Form in Britain

In this project we define ‘built form’ as the assemblage of individual buildings and structures in the built environment and we make use of a wide range of new insights and data to model the evolution of the built form in Britain. Building on the pilot CDBB project PolyChora, which has developed an...

Designing Safe Complex Environments

Using the principles of universal design, this project aims to create a VR environment that reduces usability issues such as balance in order to test virtual built environment designs with users who have a balance or sensory impairment.

The local governance of digital technology – implications for the cityscale digital twin

What part does city and regional governance play in how a city-level digital twin develops? It is necessary to understand the ways in which governance for digital twins is bound by context and the ways in which it is generalisable in order to successfully transfer knowledge and best practices among...

A digital twin prototype for journeys to work in Cambridge

How can digital twins address city-level problems such as transportation planning as work patterns change? 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-...

Exploiting traffic data to improve asset management and citizen quality of life

This project builds on a tool developed by two Cambridge PhD students that allows for the generation of high-resolution geographical data heat maps. These heat maps can help to solve optimisation problems relevant to citizens’ everyday lives. Specifically, we investigate how the interdependence...
