digital twin workshop three-dimensional visualization human-computer interaction data driven OPC UA(object linking and embedding for process control unified architecture)
To improve the human-physical-virtual coordination and integration of the digital twin workshop, 3D visual monitoring and human-computer interaction of the digital twin workshop was studied. First, a novel 6D model of the 3D visualization interactive system for digital twin workshops is proposed. As the traditional 5D digital twin model ignores the importance of human-computer interaction, a new dimension of the user terminal was added. A hierarchical real-time data-driven mapping model for the workshop production process is then proposed. Moreover, a real-time data acquisition method for the industrial Internet of things is proposed based on OPC UA(object linking and embedding for process control unified architecture). Based on the 6D model of the system, the process of creating a 3D visualization virtual environment based on virtual reality is introduced, in addition to a data-driven process based on the data management cloud platform. Finally, the 6D model of the system was confirmed using the blade rotor test workshop as the object, and a 3D visualization interactive system is developed. The results show that the system is more transparent, real-time, data-driven and more efficient, as well as promotes the coordination and integration of human-physical-virtual, which has practical significance for developing digital twin workshops.
