Consistent, adaptable and responsive connection and operation are required to maximise the benefit and welfare by the diffusion and extension of the digital twin in the built environment. The center proposes "interspace" as the area between physical and cyberspaces. Well-designed interspace enables accurate and precise reflection of the events and state-of-arts in physical space to cyberspace. It also enables responsive conversion of processing and operations in cyberspace.
The center focuses on developing a universal method of spatial description that supports interoperable activities of varieties of autonomous agents such as people, robotics, and components of the built environment. The center facilitates a holistic approach to enhance such "common ground" of spatial description through global partnership with a wide range of stakeholders.
