Sentient Joins International Digital Twin Consortium

Australian software developer Sentient Computing has joined the Digital Twin Consortium, welcoming the opportunity to collaborate with other industry groups in this developing field. Sentient develops digital twin visualisations that can sync to large scale real-world industrial and commercial facilities, using a visually rich interface built on gaming technology.

The result is an interactive and immersive digital twin visualisation that can substantially reduce the cost and risk of operating large, remote and complex facilities.
“By leveraging gaming technology we can create environments that enable operational teams to make better decisions without the cost and overhead of traditional engineering solutions,” says Sentient Managing Director Doug Bester.

“Many of our clients are multinational oil, gas, engineering and resource sector majors, who are looking to visualise facilities that might be thousands of kilometres away.

“Our process makes it simple for personnel on the ground — or those in a city-based office — to visualise the plant and equipment and align it to data being produced by the facility.”

It already delivers products in these fields through its established VR and emerging AR business, using digital worlds to address barriers to efficient and effective operation.

“Technical complexity, availability and useability of data are limiting factors in the digital progress of businesses, communities and governments,” Mr Bester says.

“Our services address these factors at source, meaning we are uniquely positioned to overcome complexity and accelerate the adoption of digital technologies by business.”

“Sentient is a welcome addition to Digital Twin Consortium,” said Dan Isaacs, CTO, Digital Twin Consortium. “We look forward to their contributions the advancement of digital twin enabling technologies based on their experience in gaming technology.
