QUANTUM COMPUTING How quantum computing can drive an autonomous future

Author / Editor: Jamie Thomson / Isabell Page

The global commercial quantum computing market is expected to reach $1.3 billion by 2027. In the automotive industry, the economic impact of QC is estimated to reach $3 billion by 2030.

Several automotive companies have begun investing in quantum computing (QC) and established partnerships with leading technology companies. These partnerships aim to improve the automotive industry and resolve many of its challenges, including traffic congestion, fuel-cell optimization and aid the realisation of Level 5 autonomous driving. Let’s take a closer look at how quantum computing could impact the automotive sector in the future.

What is quantum computing?

Quantum computing uses quantum mechanics to greatly improve processing power. It uses phenomena such as superposition and entanglement to solve certain computational problems like integer factorization.
