Where you will work

Driven by real-time data, a digital twin is a virtual mirror of a real-world asset, process, or entire system, like a supply chain or city. This mirror provides insight into how that asset or process behaves now, how it behaved in the past and how it will behave under a variety of predicted or simulated conditions. We unite these insights through state-of-the-art game engine based, 3D (AR/VR) interfaces. These Digital Twins help to improve decision-making, optimise processes, manage risk, and develop more informed solutions to today’s big societal and environmental challenges.

The main goal of the Digital Twin team is to integrate and productise Royal HaskoningDHV Digital Twin software capabilities, making it possible to deliver more and better software services to more clients.
