Presentation Abstract

“Smart Rural Area Data Infrastructure – SRADI” is a multidisciplinary information infrastructure which handles various stakeholders, multiple applications and distributed information resources. As part of the SRADI concept we address the challenges and requirements related to the distribution of information across multiple domains and between diverse stakeholders. In order to deal with such complex interactions and interconnections of multiple disciplines including the roles of different stakeholders we have introduced the notion of Distributed Digital Twin.

In this work we will present our researches and developments in the context of the SRADI concept including its Distributed Digital Twin and components such as Catalogs, IoT and Sensor Networks, and Virtual Cultural Model.
