Bristol University created the Smart Internet Lab, to use 5G radio models and mapping technology to create a 3D twin of the city.

The project will be used to predict for 5G radio signals will flow through the city to autonomous and connected vehicles. By using airborne laser scanners, the team captured a 3D model of the buildings, trees and terrain -- while mapping mobile divided on the group within the model to explore communication in the network. All of the information is integrated into the Digital Twin, to create an accurate signal level to successfully deploy 5G networks.

The Smart Internet Lab at Bristol University uses digital twin technology to become the world-leader in the development of 5G mapping tools and radio models.
