Abstract

With the development of technology, digital twin has played a non-negligible positive impact on the development of smart cities. From the mutually influential nature of digital twin and smart city, this paper analyzes the progress of digital twin technology in smart city applications through theory and case studies. The author examines three key cases: city brain, IoT cloud platform, and smart hub, to explore the application of digital twin technology in smart cities. In addition, the paper presents the potential problems of digital twin in smart cities, such as insufficient infrastructure, insufficient systematic data integration and few application scenarios. In future research, the author suggests that digital twin technology holds promise for enabling innovative applications in areas such as environmental protection, security, energy, healthcare, and tourism within smart cities.
