EDX Global Digital Twin: When the Metaverse Needs an Address

Connecting the physical world—which has already been painted with multiple, disparate layers of data—to the virtual Metaverse takes a very capable and visionary company. EDX has excelled beyond that mission and developed toolsets that enable Industry 4.0 to toggle between EDX’s virtual digital twin and the physical location of any latitude/longitude on Earth.

This overview of EDX’s groundbreaking solution illustrates how companies can access virtual insights to solve real-world problems anywhere on the planet. Stated simply— EDX gives the Metaverse an address.

Digital twins are virtual representations that serve as the real-time digital counterparts of physical objects or processes. Generally digital twins are characterized by four elements:

  • Data Capture and Integration
  • Real-time Visualization and Analytics
  • Predictive Modeling and Forecasting
  • Collaboration and Sharing

And EDX Geo-Spatial Datasets Include:

  • Terrain—elevation, vegetation, land uses
  • Roads, waterways, infrastructure
  • Utilities—electric, gas, water, telco
  • AR location data capture

Geospatial digital twins are a foundational component of technological and digital transformation. EDX has taken two Industry 4.0 advances– digital twins and geo-spatial data– and combined them into accessible solutions that are easy to visualize by field technicians, business executives, city planners and design engineers.

Users access information through AR displays on smartphones, tablets and headsets. The specific content can be filtered for individual preference—a telco field worker may be able to call up detailed maps of towers, lines and transformers but not show underground infrastructure like water mains or conduits; a road construction crew may want all available layers to be displayed to avoid incidents. EDX captures and integrates a wide variety of data sources and strives to maintain accurate, current information for clients. Oracle tapped EDX to leverage data sourced from across its enterprise and manage it so that it is accessible and useful to workers in multiple locations. In this Oracle example EDX monitors and analyzes multiple data streams:

EDX’s solution incorporates Oracle data which is overlaid with EDX’s visualizations of terrain, elevation, hardscape, utility infrastructure, assets, etc. to provide technicians with key intelligence. Oracle managers find value in this one-view display, especially during utility outages, because it helps facilitate analysis, enhances predictive modeling and enables collaboration across teams.

EDX has pioneered a suite of industry specific software programs that access, model and calculate critical information and serve it to corporations, government, utilities and additional stakeholders. Geospatial visualization imbues granular data about systems, models, and behaviors with spatial context, creating holistic digital representations of environments, assets, networks, and cities.
