RD Mel Gomez, Alexander Mattingly, Michael Connelly @ University of Maryland
This session will explore a prototype implementation of Digital Twin technology for performing laboratory experiments that was recently implemented at University of Maryland College Park, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The system consists of several projects that students can access from any browser and actuate and redirect signals on various experiments while obtaining quantitative data. Learn how University of Maryland, using Digital Twins, solves the real problem of how to give students the individual experience and training they need when it isn’t possible to go into a physical lab. See how students have achieved many of the core educational objectives of laboratories, including an analysis of real world systems, developing problem solving skills, developing insight and creativity, understanding statistics and recognizing the limits of the idealized theory and simulations.
