Shaping the future of mobility: Why quantum technologies promise a boost in innovation
In five to ten years, hybrid quantum computing will have transformed and will continue to transform almost every industry. And automotive will be among those most positively impacted: Quantum computing will allow for new battery technologies and improved assisted, piloted, and automated driving. It will significantly contribute to optimizing traffic flow in dense areas. Furthermore, the technology offers unprecedented potential to improve the vehicle production process, enhance automated parts- and vehicle design, and optimize logistics.
The impact of quantum technologies for the mobility industry will be enormous. We already work with quantum computing applications to tackle some of the current challenges, for example, smart routing in logistics or traffic flow optimization. I am excited to see this potential unfold and become a key driver for innovation.
