Remote Sensing System Enhancement for Digital Twinning of the Built Infrastructure to Support Critical Infrastructure Protection Research

The purpose of this project is to acquire a laser scanner and explore its utilities for creating digital twins of infrastructure systems to support infrastructure management. In joint with an ongoing project with New Jersey Transit Office of Emergency Management (NJ Transit OEM) on developing an early flood warning system, the project focused on applying the laser scanning and building modeling technologies to support digital twinning of infrastructure systems. The authors conducted 3D mapping activities throughout the Hoboken Terminal to create a rich semantic building model for the station. Based on the building model, the authors have already created a preliminary digital twin which consists of digital models of the station itself, a hazard system simulating the compounding of storm surge and rainfall events, and a decision simulator to allow for the investigation of what-if scenarios under various storm events. Infrastructure stakeholders have experimented with the Hoboken digital twin for various flood mitigation analysis. The project ended with delivering a critical digital twin based early flood warning system for infrastructure stakeholders.
