Description: Digital Twins are a tool and design approach, which allows for user-focused interfacing and control of dynamic environments. A Digital Twin virtually mirrors a physical asset, allowing for monitoring current states, looking into historical data, and finally allowing for predicting outcomes of “what-if” scenarios. Digital Twins are relatively new, and while some simple applications exist in the manufacturing industry, very few have been developed for agriculture, and none exist for post-harvest grain handling. Early attempts at post-harvest automation were called expert systems and focused only on digitally encapsulating the knowledge of grain handlers but were abandoned mainly due to technical limitations and human factor issues. With an increasing consumer interest in food traceability, the different processes that go into it, and the environmental impact specific food has, Digital Twins could serve as an important tool to track the history of a commodity as it moves through a facility or between various steps along the supply chain. The objective of this paper is to conceptualize a post-harvest Digital Twin for grain elevators.
