- Accelerated by current research on the Internet of Things, working with virtual models and things has taken a significant step forward. The term digital twins refers to the development of virtual models of processes, products or services that allow the simulation of system behavior and the early detection of problems before the real system exists. Simulations have been state of the art for a long time, but with the service-oriented possibilities of the Internet a new quality of simulation results. In the meantime, it has become possible, for exam-ple, to configure a virtual computer on the Internet and run algorithms on it with-out this computer in fact existing, see e.g. AWS (AMAZON web services).
This paper discusses possibilities that the digital twin concept can offer to edu-cational purposes in remote and virtual laboratories
