(Engadget) Volkswagen plans to tap the power of quantum computing to develop a traffic management system that can better process transport information and improve the performance of fleet services like taxis and public buses. Volkswagen believes the quantum system can replace current traffic models that are created by conventional supercomputers. The result will be better-run roads.
Volkswagen’s quantum computing solution is currently more concept than reality. The company is positioning the concept as a commercial venture that could be sold to cities. Volkswagen said it wants to test the algorithm in Barcelona where there is already an adequate database of traffic information available.
