iNicosia Digital Twin Internship

Career / Placement Opportunities / Internships / iNicosia Digital Twin Internship
26 January. 2023
The iNicosia project is a digital twin of the city of Nicosia that consists of an “accurate” (as necessary) 3D model of the city, with representations of actual buildings and monuments (e.g., the walls and the old city), the road network, parking places, various metadata about the environment, possibly traffic lights and their state, street lights, the power grid/water network, vegetation, etc. Such a model would have minimum usability without the inclusion of real-world data; rich time-series data will be collected by various sensors (camera feeds, thermal/humidity/motion sensors, etc.) placed around the city of Nicosia, through Government Open Data and other public or private collaborations . These data will be geolocated and timestamped, collected, associated and stored alongside the digital twin.
