SEOUL – In cooperation with Naver, a top web portal operator and IT company in South Korea, the country’s flagship national museum with many precious cultural properties will be implemented as a digital twin for a remote viewing service that allows visitors to make a vivid look with smartphones or other devices such as augmented reality glasses.

For its digital twin project, the National Museum of Korea will work with Naver’s artificial intelligence, robot and autonomous technology wing, Naver Labs, according to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. An indoor mapping robot developed by Naver Labs will be put into the museum by the end of November to produce a 3D map.

Naver Labs’ digital twin development solution allows developers to conveniently and efficiently create virtual twins of the real world. A digital twin is literally a digital clone of the real-world original. Sizes of the virtual clone vary from a Petri dish to a whole planet. Digital twins are created to put the clones in different situations such as a city struck by a massive tsunami or a building heavily shaken by an earthquake without damaging the original.
