Industries are in transition from the3rd industry revolution to the 4th industry revolution. Globally, researchers are trying to create a smooth transition between those two revolutions. As a University of technology that focuses on research, innovation, technology development and transfer, we are at the forefront in enabling this smooth transition. To that effect, our researchers in the school of engineering have been working on various solutions and using 3 technologies: 3D printer technology (industry 3.0), Digital twin technology (industry 4.0) and Big data technology (industry 4.0), they have managed to create a non-invasive digital twin. With this technology, industries can be able to shift from industry 3.0 to industry 4.0 without destroying existing systems.
We congratulate Prof. Jean Bosco, Dr. Fredrick Mwema and Mr. Charles Odada for this invention.
