New Urban Use Cases Drive Over 500 Cities to Adopt Digital Twins by 2025

With digital twins having made their appearance in cities over the last few years, mainly in the form of pilots showcasing limited capabilities, their more widespread deployment as multi-purpose urban decision and management tools is now imminent, not in the least driven by COVID-19 requirements in terms of achieving increased resilience levels and optimized asset and demand-response resource management. Digital twin deployments will exceed 500 by 2025, according to ABI Research.

Real-time 3D models of a cities’ built environment allow scenario analysis through the simulation of the potential impact of natural disasters like flooding, adopt generative design principles for new city developments  optimizing energy savings and solar capacity, and saving costs by operating cities more efficiently and effectively,” explains Dominique Bonte, Vice President End Markets.

Harman, Continental, and Bosch Lead in ABI Research's Connected Automotive Infotainment Competitive Ranking

Harman, Continental, and Bosch lead the way in connected infotainment systems, a segment that generated U$32 billion in revenues in 2019, finds ABI Research. In its latest Tier One Connected Automotive Infotainment Suppliers Competitive Ranking, Harman is the clear leader, with Continental in a distant second place, and Bosch a close third. Together, these three accounted for 30% of the total market revenue in 2019. While Visteon and Aptiv scored highly in innovation criteria, their comparatively lower implementation scores resulted in the fourth and sixth position in the overall ranking, respectively.

"The ability to deliver on these innovative technologies, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, means that financial strength has become pivotal. Tier Ones with the strongest financial health will not only be best prepared to weather the sales decline caused by the lower new vehicle sales and factory shutdowns and but also to scale production up to supply new orders when OEMs go back to a fully working environment," says Maite Bezerra, Smart Mobility & Automotive Research Analyst.
