Abstract

A Digital Twin (DT) is a digital replica of an artefact which is updated on real-time or semi-real time basis. In 2017, Gartner listed DT as one of the top ten emerging technologies of the year. Since then, there have been numerous attempts to develop architecture and reference models for DTs, and in some studies DT construction for real world case studies is reported. This chapter attempts to provide a contextualized background on Digital Twins for Smart Cities. It also discusses various stakeholders involved in devising and/or employing DTs in a Smart City. The chapter concludes with a set of recommendations for the training requirements of final DT users.
