    Azure Digital Twins Preview is an Azure IoT service that creates comprehensive models of the physical environment. It can create spatial intelligence graphs to model the relationships and interactions between people, spaces, and devices.

    With Azure Digital Twins, you can query data from a physical space rather than from many disparate sensors. This service helps you build reusable, highly scalable, spatially aware experiences that link streaming data across the digital and physical world. Your apps are enhanced by these uniquely relevant contextual features.

    Azure Digital Twins applies to all types of environments, such as, warehouses, offices, schools, hospitals, and banks. It can even be used for stadiums, factories, parking lots, parks, smart grids, and cities. The following are some scenarios where Azure Digital Twins can be helpful:

    • Predict maintenance needs for a factory.
    • Analyze real-time energy requirements for an electrical grid.
    • Optimize the use of available space for an office.
    • Track daily temperature across several states.
    • Monitor busy drone paths.
    • Identify autonomous vehicles.
    • Analyze occupancy levels for a building.
    • Find the busiest cash register in your store.
