Today we are going into the virtual world of the Hamburg Port Authority (HPA). Digitalisation and visualisation are important topics - today and in the future. The HPA is already working with virtual worlds, sensory, simulations and digital twins. Such a twin is a digital image of a real object in 3D, such as bridges or buildings. This is then linked with current and historical data. This results in positive effects such as predictive maintenance for existing objects. When planning objects, various possibilities can be played through digitally without incurring construction costs. Virtual reality is also used in the area of training and safety. In this way, various digital scenarios can be played out without any consequences resulting from mistakes made. The future is already here, as can be seen in this episode of "PORT IS WHAT WE DO".
