Mercedes-Benz Enlists Quantum Computing to Discover New Materials for Electric Car Batteries

By IQT News posted 01 Mar 2019

(CACM.ACM.org) Mercedes-Benz is exploring how quantum computers could be used to discover new materials for advanced batteries in electric cars within the next 10 years. The automaker is working with IBM’s quantum computing division to develop ways to utilize applications based on quantum computing. Mercedes-Benz’s Benjamin Boeser explained, “We could simulate the actual behavior of a battery with a quantum computer, which is currently not possible with existing computer power.”
Boeser said a quantum computer could help the automaker identify new materials or combinations of materials that could yield improved electrochemical performance and longer life cycles.
