    Industry 4.0 is resulting in unprecedented levels of efficiency and productivity. Digital Twins are taking that a step further.

    A digital twin has to do with two way interactions between physical and digital. Business Today said, "In the physical world, the real product can be made smarter to actively adjust its real-time behaviour according to the recommendations made by the virtual product or the twin. Whereas in the virtual world, the digital version of the product can be made more realistic to accurately reflect the real-world state of the physical product."
