Bentley Systems has revealed that Genesys’ 3D City Digital Twin Solution for Urban India will be powered by OpenCities 365, Bentley’s infrastructure digital twin solution for cities and campuses.
This massive mapping and surveying project has begun and will capture most of urban India.
Genesys previously partnered with Bentley to successfully pilot an earlier digital twin solution that enabled the smart inventory management of telecom infrastructure using Bentley’s OpenTower iQ software.
The robust solution provided operators with accurate and up-to-date information on planning and installing 5G towers, which saved time as well as the cost of conducting labor-intensive tower inspections.
“The Genesys 3D City Digital Twin Solution for Urban India, powered by Bentley’s OpenCities 365, will enable us to create and curate city-scale digital twins that empower government and private entities across India to improve their execution, efficiency, and strategizing capabilities using the 3D data,” said Sajid Malik, chairman and managing director at Genesys International. “This extraordinary solution enables capturing the as-built assets from the field and bringing them to the office in a reality model. We are impressed with the technical capabilities of Bentley’s digital cities portfolio and see it as a key differentiator that will help proactively improve our existing digital capabilities through a continued partnership between Bentley and Genesys International.”
The openness of Bentley applications provides Genesys further benefit because the software can connect with other asset management systems, such as third-party geospatial information systems, to capture and read that data.
Kaushik Chakraborty, Bentley’s vice president, regional executive, Asia Pacific, said, “We are extremely happy to contribute to this massive mapping project of national importance with our technology and services. The 3D cities digital twin project will enable our public agencies, service providers, and citizens to deliver or avail services, plan and execute projects, make informed decisions, and improve their quality of life.”
Chakraborty added, “The initiative will also drive the adoption of digital technology in the infrastructure segment. The output from this project will serve as the foundation for initiatives that we can launch to sustain the economy and environment.”
